Would anybody happen to know where I can find the chrome headlight trim for the early Hoover Convertibles? It's missing from my 65, 67 & 68. I guess vac shops didn't always put them back when servicing the machine. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I need two of them myself. I believe they are pretty hard to find these days. I think when the motor cover warped, as it always did on those early models, the trim did not want to stay on.

They didn't last very long. I always wondered about them.

I guess they're about as hard to find as an original vinyl bag if it's not still on the machine. You would think there would still be a 65-68 in a trade-in pile somewhere that has it. The hoods on mine aren't warped, and the headlight lens has two studs which protrude through the hood to hold the chrome trim in place. I guess someone forgot to put it back....
