i have wanted and original elite for a very long time and i could not be happier this machine is packed with suction and is quite quiet compared to its newer brothers and sisters the serial number says that i was manufactured in October 1989 this vacuum is the same age as me and works great

This was my Moms vacuum as a child growing up before she bought a Windtunnell when they first came out(1998). I have yet to see another one in person or that color scheme. We still have the Helpmate that came with it, but of course the Elite itself is long gone!!

@ Ryan

my uncle had this style of elite when i was a kid and i never thought i would see one again. i freaked out when i seen it at the vac shop. when i grabbed it he said i some how knew you would end up with it lol. glad i could bring back a good vac memory for you. i see red encore ones and white with blue stripe ones often if i run in to another ill send it your way
