Okay so this is a 3 part pic session. LOL The story behind this gem, I found it at my local vac shop while i was there looking for a brushroll. It was sitting it the garbage!!!!! THE GARBAGE?!!?!?!? yes this flawless like new vac had its handle sticking out of the trash bin. I asked why the through it out and i guess they have had it in the store new since it came out! and no one bought it. i asked if i could have it and they where pleased to give it to me. They wanted it to go to a happy home lol. well its i pretty candy apple red with white base, handle, and cord.

has a 3.5 amp blender motor and the base indicates its from 1984-1985.

Very cool machine. All original. Like new

Very nice Eureka, looks like a baby Sanitaire to me (well, I suppose it is, just with a smaller blender motor), a very nice find indeed... :)

I wish we had more Eurekas like that here in the UK, they're impossibly rare to find here, and even then they're overpriced commercials.... :(

Very nice find! I don't think I've ever seen an older Eureka in that color.
