Looks like the same turquoise/aqua/powder blue colour Eureka used for years in the 1960's!

That was a popular color back then!

The seller Kitchenaid1, Ken Smith, used to be a member here years ago. It looks like he might be selling some vacuums from a collector? He's got some pretty rare machines on there. I've bought from him before and he always has nice vacuums.

The five of them certainly look to be collector/museum grade pieces in superb condition. Wish I lived in the States for a chance to bid and pick up.
These are definitely going to be deep-pocket high-end sales, well worth watching.

And I'd mostly love to know where all that turquoise hose stock came from...

WOW!

Amazing. I have always wanted to see this machine and a GE Roll Easy in person. Talk about ingenuity. Beautiful machines.

I notice that the turquoise hoses are pool vacuum hoses! I looked up vacuum hoses on ebay and it was mixed with the T.Hoses I was going to try to replace acouple of hoses of my own with them. 400218142545 Item number. This is just a sample of what is listed.

Come to think of it, yeah the 30 foot hose I put on one of my 2nd Gen Roll-Easys is a small diameter pool hose section. Fairly robust vinyl stuff a few grades above standard generic plastic white hose. The color is an intense pale powder blue.

A more correct (an original has a bit more gray/green hue) turquoise hose is this one on my 1rst generation R-1 that I salvaged from a Flo-Bee pet groomer spotted sticking out of a box from 30 feet away in a dark crowded Junk store a few years ago. I've been on the lookout and asking around at Pet Groomer Shops for more no-longer-in-production turquoise Flow-Bees ever since.
