Hi Vac Friends!!
I've acquired these two Vintage phones today, as well as a '90s black reproduction. Does anybody have a decent 4 prong replacement plug for my Beige Rotary and an Avacado Green handset and cord leading to the phone for my Western Electric touch tone?
Video is on its way!

One beige 500, two 2500s... I have the parts but there not really for sale as the phone they are on is a gift from my grandmother. Nice phones though. Too bad you cant use them anymore with the line conversions.

"Can't use them anymore"
Actually, other than the ringer on the Black Reproduction, they are 100% functional! I'm working on making a video to post for you to see.

Before my parents moved out of their house this past fall, Dad had a green wall phone like that in the garage. It worked just fine, ringer and all. He bought it at a church rummage sale for 75 cents. I have no idea whether the clean-out crew took it or tossed it or just left it behind. That was a very common color so it shouldn't be too hard to find a handset and cord. I used to have a black repro phone just like that. It was branded "Pac*Tel", which I think was Pacific Telephone, one of the "baby bells" created after the original AT&T split up in the early '80s. They used to sell those Pac*Tel phones at Circuit City for around $15 or $20. Those phones wouldn't work for me today, though. I haven't had a land line in almost 15 years.

My parents have one like that beige one on the right, dated 1980 I think. It has a modular plug though, it came with their house. Mostly used for power outages and as a loud ringer.

There is a business called Phoneco that sells parts for vintage phones. Look on line for it I bought parts from them before.
