Very cool! You have two of the best canister vacs Electrolux Corporation made. The Model G in aqua was made from 1961 to 1966 (there was also a tan one made from 1966 to 1968), and the Model 1205 50th Jubilee in honey gold was made from 1974 to 1975 (it's manual is as scarce as hens' teeth).

Fyi ... the hose and power nozzle for your G are not original to it. The G hose is turquoise with teal-green and white tracers, and its power nozzle was the ivory model PN-1 with a teal-green bumper.

... the hose for the 1205/J is also a replacement. Its original was white with two teal-green tracers and a honey gold one in the middle. Also, the gray floor tool and Sidekick are from cleaners made in the 1980s.

Congrats and happy Electroluxing!

In the first pic, the wheels are the wrong color...then they become teal later on??

It looks like the wheels are aqua on one side, and white replacements on the other. I've got two aqua G machines, each with one white replacement wheel. Eventually I'll put all matched wheels on the one in better shape.

Hello All and Jashields83,
I am not an Electrolux expert like Charles Richard Lester but I think you might have one of the first electric hoses for the Electrolux G.
There might have been 2 styles but Charles would be the one that knows.
Also, please know your 2 Electrolux vacuums are great. I just bought a 2nd one myself with a cord in terrible shape that I have to replace.
The first one I have had for 30 or more years is not perfect but still great machine just like yours.
I think recently there was a restored "G" for sale and I believe it sold for close $600.00 and it was beautiful.
Thank you for looking,

Hello Jashields83 and All,
I forgot to mention this Thread 20041 "Very Rare Elecrolux Hose" Post #240137 which has 2 styles of Electrolux electric hoses pictured.
Is the one on the right side like yours?
Please know they are not my hoses and I copied the picture from Post #240137.
Just type 20041 in the Google Search space.
Thank you for looking,

Electrolux hoses

The above hose on left was most likely sent to factory for repair when handle end was worn.It would have had current color parts and be a bit shorter.Hose on right was between 1st blue direct connect and later improved direct connect.
--Mo G and Golden Jubilee are 2 of the best.Nice vacs!--

Agree, that's a more modern end on the left pic like you would find on a Diamond J and others. I have a hose like on the right, but the PO cut the electric part near the hose and the hose itself is a leaker. So essentially, I bought nothing....even asked the seller if the hose had the same suction on the end as the machine had without the hose..."I believe so". 


I think my hose on the nozzle end has both tan and green plastic. I'm not sure how they would have done that if not original.


It looks like the wheels are aqua on one side, and white replacements on the other.


Of course, I never thought of that scenario!
