Noticed todays wunderbar POD of the Hoover 344 commercial convertible!

Ill post some pictures of the two that I have/had. The custom 2 tone blue one I have is a childhood vacuum cleaner. Was one of the first vacuums used by the Company "the Maids" which was created out of the basement of my grandfathers house.
The machine was painted yellow at some point in its life.

The 2nd machine is in original colors, and original cord but replacement bag. This machine Now lives at Fred S.'s home up North.

And the two kinda off-set from each other.

Why the color change?
good job, but peculiar

The color change? Well the original paint was GONE. lol. It was so bad. And it was painted yellow at some point in its life, and it was awful. Couldnt find the right paint match in spray cans, so I chose these two blues.

Was going to think of having the base polished out, and hood painted commercial orange. But didn't want to put that much money into it.
