Thank you

I have a few more brand new in boxes but I can`t get to them as they are put away in my loft. The 65 I bought on eBay a few months ago I paid $100.00 for it and it was used for a very short time it had the original paper bag dated 1958 on it .The guy who sold it said his mothers neighbor died and the family just threw it out . They said it was way in the back of the coat closet no one even remembered the mother owning it . They had a cleaning service so that may be why. The hood must have been replaced since they used to melt . I am not sure how it could have the machine is barely used and looks brand new .

They all look incredible! That supremecy I bought one off of a vac store that had kept it for 25-30 years and never used. Had it behind the counter. He had the matching canister, in fact I stopped today to make him an offer and it was gone!

What is the model # of the orange/creme model in your first picture?  I cut and pasted the vacuum picture below....My grandmother had one of those for her upstairs when I was a child...I remember playing with that


Thanks :)

Oh wow!

You have more Convertibles than I do vacuums in general!

You have 33 convertibles, I have 25 vacuums. Hmmm.

kirbyloverdan's profile picture
it is model 4047 it was my Grandmothers upstairs vacuum also . She might have used it 3 times if that . She hated vacuuming and if she did vacuum she used a Kenmore SPV canister . That Hoover is as close to brand new as you can get.
Sam I own now over 300 vacuums I stopped counting when I got to 290 and there at least 25+ if not more lol. I have many NIB older vacuums and NIB high end vacuums. I own every Kirby bnib since the Classic Omega . I own a small Bungalow on 28 acres and I am very good at storing (Hording) vaccuums . You will only see 2 in my living room and about 12 in my loft that you can see the rest are well hidden .

A very large collection!

My collection is fairly small, since I dont have the room to keep them all.

Wow John are they all your Hoovers ?

kirbyloverdan's profile picture
if they are they put mine to shame lol . They look brand new. If I thought the housing market would improve I would buy a bigger house but my home is paid for and I don`t want to move all of my vacuums .
Sam I have a tiny house and if there`s a will there`s a way to store many Vacuums as most would be shocked how many they would find if something were to happen to me lol , That is one worry I always have .

My Convertibles

Thanks for posting all the pictures. No wonder Hoover went of business! Maybe they should have spent some money on improvments instead of just cranking out machine after machine after machine after machine in different colors for years and years. I had no idea they made so many different machines that were all the same except for color and trim. It is a shocker to see them all side by side.

thanks for sharing, quite a collection there...the photo of that vacuum alone brings back so many memories...was the 4047 produced in the early 70's?  Maybe even 1969/1970?  My mom had a 1030, which I think was purchased around 1972, before I was born...

yeah that would be kinda hard to take the picture of me in my pool too . I would really like to take pics of my entire collection but that will take some time so stay tuned . Next up I think will be my extensive Oreck collection and my Kirby collection but most of all of them are in boxes so I am not sure how to do those.

I am not into those vacuums because I think they are too bulky and just don`t like the look of them. I also didn`t like the rechargable power nozzel they offered now I think they went to electric.

The one I have here looks more like a rainbow than any thing else.
Never seen one with a rechargible nossel, this one is electric and the machine is about 15 year s old.
don't like the look of it either

Take pictures of what you have !

You have a wonderful collection and I personally would love to see your Kirbys,
plus the rest of the collection.
If you were ever to lose any or all of it for some drastric reason. You would
hopefully have a picture history for the Record. At least on a disc, stored
in a locked safe box in you house. Even locked on line somewhere out in cycber
space somewhere.
You might be glad you did some day. I know of a guy here in S. Ohio who was active
in this club in it's early days. He has over 600+ vacuums in his house. It was just amazing to see all of those vacuums the first time I stepped into this home. Whole rooms devoted to vacuums and nothing else. He says he has it in Writing that a friend from the club is to have all of them if anything ever happens to him. Which gave some comfort in knowing that someone who understands and would appreciate them, would have them.
