Could anyone tell me if the bag on this Hoover is original? If it is, this would make a good present for John. If it's not original, though, I'm not gonna buy it.

the style is correct but,

I would picture it being a white Bag. Then they could have decided to make a hood to go with the bags ?? John is the man !! Ch in with him, if "You Got A Have
A Hoover" !!

Hopefully one of those gurus will see this and know the correct answer. It looks like it belongs with it because the whole machine is in such good condition.

Well, you didn't ask, BUT

it IS the original bag.  HOOVER made 2.  One had a white bag,  (I have that one),  AND , they made  a matching bag as well.  My cousin has one, PLUS, I saw one in Ohio.  I asked the seller to show the top of the handle to see if it had  those scratch marks  from people who turn them over w/o protecting the handle.   I hope this helps you out.

It is original

it just looks like the hood is discolored possibly was owned by a smoker or was kept in a sunny area.

I also agree that that is the correct bag for that machine

Thanks! I appreciate the help. However, not only did I forget that John already has that particular Convertible, he also reminded me that I'm the one who gave it to him.... :\
