GTE Automatic Electric Cream Colored Model 80 Rotary Phone
This creamy model 80 from GTE Automatic Electric has sleek lines and smooth dial. It has a couple minor scuffs on front and a bit of sun fading(see pictures), and is equipped with a modular connection. It also features a ring adjustment dial.
Another of the "superior" features taunted by AE with their type 80 design over the WE 500 design was their "walking handset." If it is hung up "not just right," it always slides down into the molded cradle where it belongs. It is much less likely to be hung up cockeyed and not cause the hookswitch to disconnect and cause Receiver off Hook trouble conditions. That was perceived to be a defect of the Western Electric 500 design where an improperly hung up handset would stay propped up and not disconnect.
