Very nice phone, I have what I beleive is a light gray 554, but is badly yellowed.  The color code is light gray and the inside looks light gray.  But I digress, wish mine was this nice.  Superb phone!
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.

this guy uses new old stock shells and puts them on old phone bodies. They aren't true numbers matching phones. I bought a turquoise 544 kit from him and spruced mine up. Quality was 1st rate, but it isn;'t ORIGINAL.

I think I e-mailed him once about the manufacturer.  I believe they are Stromberg-Carlson.
