Got your attention? I couldn't resist giving this a try. For $11 delivered maybe I can cobble and make a true "Frankenphone"....Doug

Greg....It is a clear.... blue.  I've always wanted to see if I could make it fit on a 302. I never see them around at flea markets, so $11 and I was in....Doug

Well... you might not be able to fit the clear blue shell on an actual 302 base, but at the very least you might be able to find a real rotary dial that might fit in that hole and a less "modern" handset cord...

What kind of handset is that one imitating? Or is it a modern fantasy handset?

If it's anything like my Steepletone or ProtelX phones, it'll take a fair amount of modification to make it like what it's cloning....  :-\
