I picked this up at my local goodwill. I like the styling of these vacuums. It was only $9.99 but filthy.

I have not had the chance to use it yet but it looks to be ok.

I love those Vacuum Cleaner finds where they are filthy and slightly beaten up, because it makes it even more enjoyable when you restore them to good condition again!

I've never seen a red Panasonic upright before, so it was interesting to see the pictures.

By "Dirt Sensor", does that mean it has an Autosense type sensor to increase/decrease the motor speed ?

Jamie, no that's not what a Dirt Sensor is in North America. Over here, a Dirt Sensor is a sensor in the powerhead, which sends a signal to a red/green light; it will flash red if the area is dirty, & will turn green when no more dirt is detected.

Very nice find there, Wayne! Amazing what some people donate to Goodwills, eh?

Thanks for explaining Rob!

I think I'll be keeping my eye out for a Panasonic upright now!

Panasonic have done that dirt sensor thing on at least one of its cylinders which were on sale in the UK. It was in the floor tool and required a battery. Philips had something similar on the extention tubes. Neither of them were selling features for long. I don't think it was worth the bother.

Jmurray there has been at least one red UK version Panasonic upright, in the same style as the usual 1994-onwards white model which is so popular. It had a head light and electronic control. They also came in black, green, and blue, over the years but you may already know this.
