One of Eureka Williams’ finest products. My parents had the Cordaway version in the same “Queen Anne Gold”.

Those were the days, my friend. *sigh*

Actually, ours was model 2083 with the beige hood and new Edge Kleener suction channels. It looked identical to the model you have pictured on the left. It sure was a classy cleaner, and that big headlight was really bright! The only thing it was missing was a handle to help carry it up and down a flight of stairs.

Antique white, according to Eureka literature. That is a 2083.

Ahh... thank you! Queen Anne Gold and Antique White...very classy.

You know, the vac matched my mother’s living room very well: early 1970’s style - gold curtains with matching gold sofa, wood topped coffee table and end tables with antique white legs and bases, white wallpaper with a subtle pattern like brocade on the Eureka’s bag. Our wall-to-wall carpeting was turquoise!

You could have sat the Eureka 2083 in the corner of our living room and it would have blended right in!
