This was for sure available in the USA - you are looking at the French side of a bilingual English/French box used by Hoover in Canada. Often American vac companies had to modify their labelling to sell American-made vacs in Canada in order to make it easier to sell to French-Canadians (it's also the law in Canada that all products have bilingual packaging.)

Hoover Spectrum Canister and Hoover PowerMAX Canisters

Oh I was wondwering a about Hoover Spectrum Canister Brochures. Hav e they been around? At least I looked for the and I can't find them. Particularly S3605. The Model I have died for but don't currently care to get right now. I have A lso been wondering about the PowerMAX Canister line and how there got be the PowerMAX 950 although I looked at schematic and S3615 I looked that, and was the PowerMAX 950 that moidel? I was also wondering about their brochures, if ever. I look at the Spectrum 950 and The PowerMAX 950 their exactly the some color, but their cord rewind and on-off pedals are different colors. The Spectrum 950-blue and the PowerMAX 950-tan. The Spectrum 950-Power Surge and the PowerMAX 950 Rug and Floor Selector switch for the power nozzle.

Tempo 460 and Spectrum Canisters and their packaging

I know now this was avalible in the USA. But what did the boxes of Spectrum Canisters look like? Including S3605. I wondered what their packaging looked like as well. Can you please show me packaging of Spectrum Canisters? If you have any? I am interested in Tempo Canisters. The 460 is the one I am interested in the most.
Hoover Spectrum Canisters are what I have been iterested in, and their packaging.
Here is the picture of S3605 AKA Spectrum 950

Must I say that the Spectrum 950 must have been one of the last applications to use the early '80s-style Quadraflex Powermatic lighted nozzle?

It is and I don't think Hoover had anymore canisters with Quadriflex power nozzles after that.
