I was cleaning out my basement and found this vacuum cleaner hidden in a corner. I guess that it was left by the previous owners who built the house. It is in its orignal box, has its manual, and even the warranty registration card. I did a google search on it and found an ad for it from 1964. Click on the link to see it. My main question is this: Is the cleaner worth money to someone?

Can we get some pictures?
If it's as complete as you say it is I'll open the bidding at $20. I'll be completely honest, with a very few exceptions, old vacuums won't ever fetch you more than the price of a nice bottle of booze. However there is a corollary to that statement; it's rare to find one in such awful shape that you can't find someone to give you $5 or $10 for it just because, and vacuums are like cars inasmuch as if it works, you can always find someone who wants it simply for that reason.

Hi All I have been collecting for over 40 years i can truly say as in most things a vacuum is only worth how much a collector and how badly he or she really wants that model machine.Doug

By the way - thank you for that link to the "Vintage Ads" website! :-) It has some wonderful old ads for vacuums if you use the "search" feature.....

GE MV 1 attachments

I'd love to buy GE MV 1 attachments. Anyone have the wands and the floor attachments?

I have MANY Swivel Tops,a few uprights & polishers and should have MV1s and some attachments.It will be later when I have GE hoses/atts sorted as I am moving from the old store to a new location that will continue vacs and add 1000s of books.I prefer pick up in person(as many here have & will be doing) but may later ship items with buyer paying UPS for all packing/shipping.(Did you need gray or later color?)
