The Model 500 came about as a replacement for the model 302 and quickly became the new workhorse of Northern and Western Electric line of telephones. The 500 was manufactured in many colours over the years but originally in black, brown, white, beige, blue, green, pink, and yellow. Dial The dial is an early 7C that has been fully disassembled, cleaned, lubed and timed to ensure years of trouble free service. We have also added a brand new finger wheel, die cut dial card and acetate. The line cord has a modular connection to facilitate a modern connection to your wall jack. Shell The ITT plastic shell has been painstakingly put through a multi-step restoration process which includes sanding with 400, 800, 1000, 2000 grit. This ensures that there are no scratches, dents or dings. The shell is them carefully buffed on our two step buffing wheels. This takes out the fine abrasions left by sanding and leaves the plastic with a smooth factory fresh finish. Finally we apply a three step plastic restoration compound. This leaves the plastic with a beautiful high gloss finish. Dont be fooled by other plastic 500s where they are simply painted, we have the real deal. Handset The handset has been ultrasonically cleaned to get all embedded debris. It is then sanded with the same process as the shell and buffed back to its beautiful original shine. Base The base is completely stripped of all its components and sandblasted clean. It is then sealed with clear coat. Do you currently have any rotary phones? If they do, you are all set to go.
