Drop a Dime!!!

Here is a vintage working 1950s Model 233 3 slot payphone. The internal parts of this phone are all present and intact, and it has been wired with a modular line cord so that it will work on your home phone line. We can also install a ringer to notify you of incoming calls. Although you won't need a coin to make a call with this classic, the phone still emits the telltale "ding" as a coin is dropped. We are including the the keys to the coin vault and the top housing. Please note, the phone does not come with a coin box. Perfect for billiards rooms, game rooms, Pool side, family rooms or anywhere else. Your antique payphone will look great! This is a unique opportunity to own a classic piece of functional communications technology.

The Restoration Process

Dial – Dial has been fully disassembled, cleaned, lubed and timed to ensure years of trouble free service. The number plate has been cleaned and buffed back to its perfect original sheen. A brand new die cut dial card and acetate cover has been added as well.

Chrome - The vault door, hook, coin slot, coin return and instruction frame have been refinished and professionally chrome plated. The mirror finish is flawless and will last a lifetime.

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

Body – The body has been stripped down and sandblasted using a glass grit and powder coated in a semi-gloss black finish. This closely resembles the finish on the original payphone finish

Handset – Handset has been ultrasonically cleaned to get all imbedded debris out. It is then sanded through a 4 step process (400, 800, 1000, 2000 grit) and buffed back to its beautiful original shine.

Internals – The phone has been retrofitted with a modern internal network and will allow you to make and receive calls while giving you the best quality sound.

The phone goes extensive testing before to ensure it is in perfect working condition prior to shipping.
