It could be one of the extremely rare Invisi-phones.  So rare that you can't even see it.  Just imagine the value of an invisible phone after that 302 sold last week for $2,800 and it was merely clear plastic.  What a find.  I'm assuming the seller will ad a picture soon, so the first pic below is a screen shot of the original ad, to get the joke. ;)

Ya know...some phones really should be invisible.  This one for example. 
I don't even want to know what that "artist" was smoking...
You might want to get a barf bag before you look at it: ::) :P

It's a modularized version of the rare 1949 WE500, personally autographed by Henry Dreyfuss!(underneath all that crap, that is)

Oh tell me it ain't so. ;D

Dan/Panther; you know some methods for removing paint.  What do you think this one would require?  A quarter stick of dynamite for starters? ;)
Or something a bit more potent?:

Okay!  Let's say we all pitch in and buy it for Bill, put a little tu-tu on it and send it with a complementary bottle of Pepto Bismol. ;)

I'm thinkin' D/P could get this 500 back in shape, he's the paint remover man.

And yeah, suppose that under all that crap is a 1949 chassis, oh the inhumanity!
