Hmmmm say I, is it pink, or what?
« on: February 18, 2009, 01:03:35 AM »
Hard to tell since the color of the photo's is somewhat off. But notice the color below where the handset sits. It looks like this may be a severely faded pink set. Opinions?

I agree, the handset is newer and modular, it may be a good phone to build a nice 55 pink phone from. If indeed they were pink in 55, which I don't think they made pink in 55 did they ?

They began production of "Rose Pink" in 1957.  This phone is a boat anchor for sure.
