Eureka Roto-Matic 800 Style,
Would anyone happen too have a picture of the very last 800 style Eureka canister... they were two tone blue,the hose was blue with white tracers and had a white machine end that went into the top of the vacuum just like on a Eureka 910.?

I must confess: I am drawing a blank with this one. In Vacuumland thread 7759, Aeolian Dave shows a late 1950ís green 800 Roto-Matic to match the other green and gold Eurekas for the companyís 50th anniversary in 1959. Not sure how to link you to thread 7759. But I have never seen a blue and white 800 in the styling of the early 1960ís. This will be am interesting thread!!! :-)

Scroll down to post 86810 of the thread in the attached link and youíll see the green and white version of the 800 series narrow Roto-Matic. I only know of the later 900 series Super Roto-Matic in blue and white.

I am not sure, but I think I have one,

I do have the first 3 versions of the 800, used one the other day, the first was dark green, second red with a small dolly, the third, 1955 has a larger more stable dolly and the switch is up higher on the cleaner body, I also have 2 green ones, one is a Jewel Tea, Mary Dunbar.When I feel better I will go see if I don't have a blue one, I'm in bed with a Kidney Stone right now!
