There were three others: the first one is the model 1330, sold from 1967-1968. Styled with a green bag and gray cover plate. The next one was the model 1340, sold from 1969-1972, and styled in brown.

The third one was the model 1348, styled in green and seal greige, sold from 1973-1977.

And the last one - the one you're referring to with the honey color - was model U1025, sold from 1978-1980, although some wholesale outlets continued having inventory of it through 1982.

Also... prior to the 1330 Lightweight Upright, Hoover had three more such sized vacuums throughout the 1950s. These were:
Model 115 Lightweight Upright - produced 1949-1953 (trim color is various shades of brown)
Model 12 Lark - produced 1953-1956 (trim color is dark red almost throughout; cover plate is gray)
Model 14 Lark - produced 1955-1957 (trim color is white and light blue)
