Western Electric 500 

 

History

The classic 500. 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. 

 

The Restoration Process

 

Touchpad Dial – The dial is brand new to ensure years of trouble free service.

Cords – The phone has been outfitted with brand new vinyl cords and the line cord has a modular connection to facilitate a modern connection to your wall jack.

Shell –  The 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. Don’t be fooled by other plastic 500’s 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.
