this next phone is not vintage at all but was given to me by parents when they came back from great Britain visiting relatives.i had to change to the cord to a modular connector used in the usa.

ALLRIGHT, which phone should I refurbish next? the choice is between my 302 and one my 500s(the phone claimed to be the andy Griffith phone(and I still doubt that it is). if a few of you could respond to this question, maybe I can make up my mind.... thank you.

Who are you trying to fool! You will have them both done before we help you decide.

A kink snuck back into your blue handset cord about 5 or 6 coils from the base. You should be able to twist it out without any trouble.
