I recently found a Kirby Model 510 from 1950-51 and am looking for a place to post it for sale to collectors. Can anyone direct me to a forum or site where I could post it for sale? It is in excellent condition, considering its 60+ year age. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I suggest eBay. You might want to post a link to the site where you sell it.

Possible value?

Would you have any idea what something like that would be worth?

It all would depend on originality.

Post a picture of it, and we can tell you if it has original parts or not. A bag that is original, as with cord, and trim are highly desired. But some rebuilds (lots of kirbys were redone sometime in its life) looked very nice.

Would it be wise to clean it before taking pics or would that detract from value?

Bag is original. Cord and trim also appear original.

A good dusting off is always appreciated to the buyers eye.

Are you a collector or just someone who thinks he has a gold mine with the Kirby you found ?

I don't know if I found something of value or not. I am not a collector. I actually work for a Kirby distributor and have been reading this forum for a few months. I have learned a lot from this site. I think Kirbys are awesome. My wife and I have a G3. She loves it.

I just run across a lot of people who have old Kirbys, FQ, or Electrolux and wonder what some of them are worth.

Just depends

on what someone is willing to pay for any Kirby that they may want in their collections . Could be a $20.00 Kirby or a couple hundred dollar Kirby . Do you have any pictures of the Kirby you found ? Kirby vacuums are in my opinion the best vacuum made.Do you sell Kirby vacuums ? Where is the Sentria replacement ???

I do sell Kirbys. I wish I knew about the next
Model. I seriously doubt they will announce much until it is released to be sold.

My distributor claims to know nothing about the next model.

I would be interested in the Kirby for sale-does it have the attachments?

Post# 134610 , Reply# 11   4/29/2011 at 07:01 (4,825 days old) by kirbyguy2011 ()        

It does not include the attachments. I will get the machine cleaned up and post a pic this weekend.
