Nice, Bill. I really like that shade of green--seems to have some blue in it.

Just one small correction Paul....the Eureka 260 was a green and gold 1957 Super Automatic upright cleaner. The colours were later changed to Lagoon Blue and white with chrome/silver trim.

3.Model 31 Special- 1958-1961. Shades of Jade green and pearl white. Cheaper version of the 65, no
headlight, step on switch, snap bag. 58-60 models have green painted base and wide top 65 style bag.
60-61 models have pearl white painted base and narrow top bag. Both have green painted handle.

Thanks for the corrections, Brian and Jae. I'm sure there are other errors, too. Even though I got most of my information from Vacuumland posts I didn't read entire threads to see if corrections had been made or do any double-checks.
