Automatic Electric Model 40 - RARE NILE GREEN

The Automatic Electric Model 40 Monophone was introduced in 1938. This combined phone includes all the components required to operate within the casing, eliminating the need for an external network subset and ringer.
The AE40 is a graceful example of art deco design. These rugged phones were made of solid bakelite and were available in a variety of colours with various trim options
This particular unit is very rare "Nile Green" coloured deluxe "chrome trim" version. It has chrome bands on the handset, a chrome finger wheel, and a chrome "pickup" bar under the handset. The body and receiver have both been moldedin "Nile Green" coloured plastic. The phone has been fully refurbished, and is in excellent working condition. The dial has been lubricated and timed to ensure that it will give years of trouble freeservice.

Do you currently have any rotary phones? If the answer is no, it is always a good idea to call your local phone company and check if they still support “pulse” dialing. If they do, you are all set to go. If they do not, your phone will not be able to place calls without a converter. We have internal converters for this type of setup available for $79.95 (installed during assembly) or an external solution for 44.95.
