I've wanted a Kirby Classic 3 for quite a while because my grandma used to have one. I got looking on Craigslist and found one for only $25 and wasn't in too bad of shape. I brought it home and Polished it up the best I could still planning on working on this some more and cleaned it up looks better than it did.

I believe it was built in January 1978.

Seems to be!

That tartan cloth bag is aftermarket. What yours had originally was this tattersall-pattern bag.

I didn't think it was the one it would have came with. I've been thinking about get an original cloth bag for it. I also want to get a Kirby heritage II emptor and bag so I can use it with out getting the cloth bag dirty.
