Iíve been a member on here for quite a while but havenít posted before so: Hello!
Iíve inherited a lot of vacuums, from a family member who worked at Hoover. A few of them are new and unused and most are in excellent condition. He was in marketing so I think he got a lot of trial models and export versions. Thought Iíd kick off with this one - I canít find anything about the ďHoover 51Ē anywhere and I wondered if anyone knew anything about it. Itís a top fill model which I wasnít even aware was available on this style of Junior. It has a European plug on it so it's definitely an export model. Model number is U1016 from September 1976.

Funny you posted this I saw one of these with the 51 logo on eBay in Germany about a month ago and wondered what the story was behind the branding.

Would assume it's some sort of branding for a retail chain as I know Hoover Europe did that for chains like Euronics and a few others.

It's it great condition, really interested to see what other machines you inherited ?
