Hey everyone, Check this video out it has no sound but appears to show vintage hoover convertibles being assembled and other hoovers being tested.

If I were to be really picky

They are not convertibles at all, but Seniors - model 652A to be exact. Actually the two videos are related, being two parts of the same whole - still good though :)

The whole video is on the Internet Archive with sound. I have it saved on my hard-drive.

Complete Video?

Hi Bagintheback - you said the complete video was on the internet. Would you have a URL for it? Or perhaps the search terms you used to locate it?

Unfortunatly the whole video is not available, or not so far at least. Part 1 (full) is on the link in Reply 1, part 2 (not complete) is below - this is teh source of the original link on this thread is from. The great thing is that at least you can download them to your hard drive to keep and watch at your leisure - oh, the film is from the early 1960s not the 1950s

Thank You

It's great to see this era of English Hoover vacuums; The US ones must have had comparable assembly, and testing. Glad you found them. Thanks, Ron
