Restoration of a GPO Type 746 Telephone

Hello all.

 

So for the past week I've converted and restored a two tone green 1970's GPO 746 Telephone.

 

The first thing I needed to do was clean and then rewire the inside in order to make it work on a modern BT line.

 

Today I've fitted a new curly cord, rotary dial and centre opal disc. I've also replaced the transparent recall button on top of the phone with a coloured green dummy button.

 

Overall very pleased I'd say the restoration is now fully complete!
