Beautiful! As I think you know, my maternal gramma had one of these. But the hose on hers was brown.

Wow, what a great find, in lovely condition!  I have only seen those salmon pink GEs with the flip over nozzle.  This is the first I've ever seen the newer rug/floor tool in that color.

Oh right, the one my gramma had was two-tone pink, and the part that swivels around on top was plain metal. Maybe that's why the hose was a different color, because it was a slightly different model? I thought I still had that machine but didn't come across it when I moved all the stuff home from storage. So I don't remember now what became of it.

That was..

A C-3, it was 2 tone pink, yhe first ones had a metal polished top, the later ones had pink plastic, these had the flip over tool, the c-4 is a different color, with a reddish pink hose instead of brown, and the dual action rug and floor tool. here is one of my c-3 s.

Yep, that's the one Gramma had! She was mean about not letting me use it. "It's not a toy" was her favorite mantra about anything she didn't want me touching.


All she'd ever let me use was her boring, dumb old Bissell carpet sweeper.

Roll around...

mine is the metal polished top and two tone pink and coral,brown hose and flip rug/floor tool.Bought me many years ago in LA from a house sale.At that time it was fairly new and have used it as my daily driver until recently.Now I use a new Henry by Numatic.Yours is so clean and looks like it was not used much.

Another great find!

Hey Hans,
Not sure how you find so many amazing finds but this, too, is in great condition and the less common of the "Pank GE's," too!
Very nice!

Dang, Hans!  You're finding a lot of nice things down your way, too!  Thanks for sharing!  I've always thought those are pretty cleaners.

Every one's right Hans! Great looking machine.
