Found these sitting outside, under cover, in Blythe CA. Parents have recently passed, and would want these to go to a good home. They are part of the estate, so if not sold here, they will be available in the estate sale. I will be out there this weekend and will get better pictures, but as can be seen, the condition is poor.

Post here if there are specific questions or comments. I'm interested in what they may be worth, as I'm not a collector/restorer/enthusiast myself. The extent of my knowledge comes from years of experience with a 515, then later a "G".

Among what I can see:
* Kirby Classic 1CR (1970-1973)
* Kirby 562 Sanitronic (1962-1963) or Sanitronic VII (1963-1965)
* Kirby Dual Sanitronic 50 (1965-1967)

Good luck finding new homes for these!

I see other vacuums that's aren't Kirby. I'd be interested in knowing what they are
I believe I see what looks to be an original green Hoover model 66 convertible from 1958-59

Hans, that's a 66. Someone needs to save the Hoover gems

Wow, I would buy the all Hoovers and the Kirbys as well, but it is about 230 miles to Blythe. I haven't been to Blythe nor past Blythe in 40 plus years. I mean no malice but for me I it is not going to work out. I wish you good luck in selling them and I hope there are some collectors of vacuums nearer Blythe. Yes, I agree some of them should be saved if not all of them.
The best,
