Thanks to Phillip Muller, I finally have at least one complete Hoover set at long last.  These Advantage cleaners were made circa 1984-1987? and were vac shop/select dealer exclusives.  I got both uprights back in Jan 2008 (on the same day, how weird is that?) and I got the powerhead for the Advantage Spirit over in Belleville awaiting the machine and wouldn't you know Phil found one picking in Kansas and gave it to me over Memorial Day weekend.  Odd thing though is the Spirit will not run in the bar room in my basement but yet it will work upstairs and at Cross Keys vac shop, but anywho enjoy

Oh my gosh!

I am SO jealous. My mother had the beige full hood one with the black handle. She either got it at Kmart or Meijer...she thinks KMart. I am so jealous that you have one.

Kyle, the TOL Kmart 4339/4397 Convertibles share the same Honey Beige hood but it didn't have a chrome handle, is that what you are referring to?
