The cord looks reasonable in the pictures you posted.  As long as you dont want to use it to make calls, I would leave it as is. The phone also doesn't look as though it has darkened too much so I am wondering what the Antique White cords I have would look like on it if you really want to replace the cord. I should look at some of my junker phones as well in case I have a decent cord on one of them.

I don't think that the phone has discolored at all.  The cord is good enough for display and some very minor use, but it tears when stretched.  I don't believe that I have seen antique white, so I don't know what sort of match it would be.  Ideally, I would like to have a cord on it which is in good condition but also looks like it belongs.

A couple of Antique White AE 80E's. I know, a side by side comparison with an Ivory 80 would be more informative. Antique White is just a little lighter than AE's Ivory color.
