Seller notes that "there are no flaws," despite the fact that the front wheels are clearly missing.

You'll also note that the bag isn't permanently attached to the exhaust spout ring. When you turn on the machine, the bag will blow off.

rare perhaps, but not at all original

every one of those machines has the wrong bag , and the 2c and 4c have the wrong cords and trim. those machines are worth very little in thier current state, and nowhere near what the seller wants.

lol I saw these and put an $200 offer on one of them..I felt was more than generous enough.. They barely budged. What's the point of offers if you're only willing to flex a few bucks. I'd REALLY REALLY love to have prewar Kirby but I'd only pay these prices if they were all original. The bags and cords are valuable in themselves as they are old products but they don't belong on these.

Unfortunately there is very little original on these vacs...and not to mention parts that are missing or broken that would be hard to replace. Likely would need replicas. So it's not worth the price considering what would need to go into them to restore them. I hope they'll sit a long time and maybe they'll learn. Or maybe grow impatient and wish they took my offer lmao.
