THE PHONE CAR

Phone Car

The Phone Car has been created by business owner Howard Davis as a way to promote his telephone company Datel Communications. The original car was a baby blue 1975 Volkswagen Beetle, purchased used for $125. The body was removed, so only the VW’s chassis (frame, motor, transmission & wheels) were used to build this custom car. The body of The Phone Car was custom fabricated on site at Datel Communications in the Boston area. It has a telephone ringer as its horn, so instead of a honk it rings! The entire project took about 1 year to complete. The finished car was painted candy apple red to draw attention. This was also one of the standard colors offered when this phone was in common use.
