I'd give it a year of manufacture somewhere between 1958 and 1964 - not sure exactly. To attach an optional hose for use with attachments, you remove the nose cover at the front of the hood. The all-bristle brush roll was called a Disturbulator, and this upright took the famous top-filling Eureka F&G Bags.

The handle should have three positions: storage, regular use, and flat to the floor to vacuum under low tables.

Hope this helps!

Very nice! A real workhorse from Eureka. I remember that the Model 250 began appearing in ads about 1949. There was a 250-A in about 1950, and after that, I lose track of the uprights.

eurekaprince's guesstimate is probably correct.

Congratulations. I hope it cleans up well.
