Hi everbody! Here's some photo evidence of the Hoover I hinted at a while back. I'd love to know what year this was from so I can look for advertisements and other material about it. It's such a nice vacuum. This is the first Hoover in the collection and it's also the first to go: it made somebody VERY happy this Christmas!

After cleaning it up we changed the two filtration pads inside and updated it to HEPA filtration. This baby is clean and sparkly and purrs like a kitten! (Or actually I think it roars like a lion!)

Bags are easy to come by, too. We found basically a lifetime's supply in no time at all!

From what I remember, the Hoover portable was sold during the 60-70s. And the post-motor filter is not HEPA, those filters went not in vacuums till the late 90s.

And here are your brochures!

Hoover Portable

Maybe not the exact model, but portables really only differed by color.

I think this model has a similar color to your model

Now here's an interesting trivia question (don't know the answer, though):

Which vac came first - the Sunbeam Courier or the Hoover Portable? Both seem to be "suitcase" vacs with tools stored inside. And both were on the market at about the same time (late 60's, early 70's). But I am curious who thought of this idea first. Was it Sunbeam, or Hoover?

My aunts suitcase, not really sure which one, she lived in SF around 61? What could it have been???????

Well, the Portable came out in 1963, it uses the same motor as the Dial-A-Matic (which also came out that year). Not really sure about the Courier.

Wow - did not realize that both were in the stores so early into the 1960's. Now we have a date for the Portable - 1963. Can someone find a date for the debut of Sunbeam's Courier? Something tells me this was later than 1963 - but it would be fun to find out the real year of the debut! :-)

bagintheback, those are great advertisements. Thanks for sharing!

We actually installed the HEPA filter material ourselves. When we cleaned and restored the vac, the old filter material had to go.

And 15brandon, thanks for that link. But I am suddenly confused. VacWorld.org? Vacuum Collectors Association? Is this a splinter group that broke away from Vacuumland and the VCCC? (Or vice versa?) Had no idea that there were that many of us out there ... even multiple sites and clubs! Wow!

Your welcome, vacworld.org only has advertisement pics that's all.
