Whadaya know? I guess I was in the right place at the right time! A fellow AFCA(American Fan Collectors Association)member sent this to me!

Vacuum cleaners...

...always make the best birthday presents! My grandparents, who have always been very encouraging and supportive in my hobby, bought me a Hoover Constellation for my birthday when I was around 14, and it has yet to be beaten as 'best present ever'! Apparently, it's also quite rare, having an orange body and white base - could have been a department store exclusive, one over here seems to know!

On Christmas when I was 8. I got my frist real vacuum. A Royal handvac brand spanking new out of the box. Not sure of the model but of course it came out with the same color upright. Red and grey bag with a grey handle. My grandparents bought one for themselves which today I still have both. One in the original box. I do use one or the other on occasion. My grandparents supporte my habit as well.

Happy Birthday Jace!

And yes that is quite a nice find -- very rare to find an Electrolux Model XI any more. Hope you'll not be tempted to conduct any "Dr. Frankenstein" experiments on it, haha!
