This Penny/Connie keeps surfacing on craigslist
if anyone's interested.

Not complete with tools, but its a good unit
to start with.

I had forgotten about you posting this here, and as it turns out, I ended up being the one to purchase the vacuum! I haven't tried it out yet, as I just unboxed it, but it appears to be in great shape, AND the hose is still rather flexible! I have some spare bags at home that will fit it, so I'll have to dig one out and try this puppy out! It's been a long time since I've owned a Hoover Constellation, and I am VERY happy to find one that has the JC Penney "Penncrest" trademark on it!

Great news, Steve

Glad it found a good home!

I've had nothing but good luck with
Craigslist folks. Very accommodating
about shipping (I cover the costs,
of course, and throw in a few extra
bux for their trouble).

Just let me know what your looking
for, and I'll see what turns up in
my weekly searches of the whole U.S.

I have a Penncrest Constellation, it has similar colors to that one but the bottom of the sphere is orange and mine looks just like the tilted Hoover Constellation models and has the attachment carrier at the back.
