Is John Long, he should be able to tell you colors, years, and if your HOOVER is capable of supporting the Turbonic-Gardener™  attachment. As much as I love my HOOVERS, all I can be certain on is the VERY first  

Dial-A-Matic cleaner, the world's first clean-air upright, was released in 1963 in the color of pumpkin and taupe!

I believe you left out the model 1149 as well. Also, does anyone know which were the last DAM models available in the power drive and non-power drive versions? Was there an overlap when the Concept 1 debuted? A vac shop owner told me awhile back Dial-A-Matics could still be purchased new in 1980.

DAM on the Left

Yeah I remember this post and I know the right is a 1149, but the one on the left is a mystery and I have not seen another. It looks like it might go with the U4003 Convertible, but I don't know. Info needed!!!

I believe 1157 was yellow.
I've never seen this one. I'm gonna say it's a frankendam or an imported dam???

It looks as if the front is from an 1170. Notice how Dial A Matic is written at the bottom?
