I found this nice Hoover convertible model U4001 in the vacuum section of my local thrift store. it was only 12 dollars and from what i can see it has only been used a few times. All it needed was a new belt and paper bag. It was a great find.

That's a wonderful find for only $12!  It looks brand new!  I like the color too.

Wow what a great find. It must have had the original belt and bag in it.

Probably stored for decades.  Yes,  replace that bolt... at once!
