Hi You Guys! Here are some of my newest vacuum finds over the last several weeks. Most of these Eureka's are from the 1980's with the exception of the Bicentennial model. The Bicentennial Eureka was a gift from a dear collector friend of mine. The wild moss Eureka 625 was a Craigslist find. The Eureka Ultra and the navy blue ESP I got off of Ebay. The pastel Eureka ESP was from Rick A. I got this on my last visit to St. Louis. Here are some pictures to enjoy!

Here is my favorite of the five...my Eureka 625 in wild moss green. I love the color and it was in great shape when I got it. It came from a guy who worked at a nursing home in Chicago. It runs great!

Here is the pastel ESP. This vacuum is a beast on carpets and I love the pretty floral print on the bag. It is from around 1990/91 and some of you might remember when those floral pastel colors were really in style. Especially as a print on sofa's and such.

Here is the Bicentennial Eureka. It has almost no scratches and it runs beautifully!

Here is the Eureka Ultra in action! It is very smooth and while it's design is a bit too modern for my usual liking, I think it is a neat machine!

Lastly, here is the navy blue ESP. I do not know very much about this particular model. I don't know if it was a promotional model or a showroom model maybe? I have never seen one in a catalog or on Ebay or anybody's collection. This runs great and I love the color combo of it. One of the prettiest Eureka ESP's in my opinion.

Fabulous finds, Stephen!  Great assortment you have there.  You must bring that Eureka Ultra to the Convention... I've never gotten to play with one in person!   You have a very nice collection!  Thanks for sharing your new finds!

Love the liberty one

I don't know that I've ever seen a liberty-print bag before. Very nice.

Thanks Fred! I will definitely bring it to Minneapolis! It runs great and it is very smooth to push. Plus it cleans and grooms the carpet very well!

I just found this same model.

but with one difference, mine has the two speed ESP switch in the handle. Mine is dated 1978. Anyone else have one of these??

Re: Reply 14

Below is a 1980 newspaper ad of the Eureka model 2084, which debuted in 1979, along with web photos that match the cleaner in reply 14. The 2084's royal blue hood color is unique in that era. Others had similar blue-colored bases with white enameled hoods. It was one of the first to be equipped with a VG-II brush roll.

I wonder if the cleaner shown in replies 8 & 9 with the toe switch instead of the handle switch and lacking a hand grip is just a different type or a different model?
