OMG! I can't believe the price of this vintage Shop Vac! I don't know if it has all the tools; but it looks like mine.

Would you please read what it says on the nameplate, that is, if you still have it?

Wow shop-vacs were weird looking back then! Were they able to take the same kind of abuse? I have a 60L 6hp at home (bought last year) does all the tasks I throw at it, including hooking it up to powertools as a dust collector!

Yes-those older Shop Vacs could take abuse--at one workplace I was at one like the one shown was being used as a dust catcher for a band saw-the tank and filter were PACKED-emptied the drum and cleaned the filter-then worked good as new!What was bad-both wood and metal sawdust in the drum-lucky a fire didn't result-that could happen if wood and metal sawdust mixed together.

They're at my vacation home, which I haven't been there in a while. My dad still lives there; & the vacs too.
