I found my first ever cleaner in my closet, it is a 1970's Sears Kenmore Majicord. It has quite a bit of wear "Scuffs, scratches, yellowing, aswell as a small tear on the top of the bag. Im not sure if it works anymore due to its long stay in the deep depths of my closet haha, but im hoping it does. We had a small leak a while back and a few parts of the undercarrige are a tad bit rusted but other than that its clean.

I was wondering if it would be possible to restore it, the reason i want to ask on here is i know how hard it must be to find parts for this beauty. This is my first post and its been FOREVER since i even worked on a vacuum so if i sound stupid im sorry! Thanks For Reading! ~Brendan

Excellent vacuum find!!!! But I think that twin fan Kenmore is around the mid - late 80ís. I would love to find one like that as well.👏

Nice vac. I don't imagine you actually need many parts for that. Probably all elbow grease.

Very nice!
This is a late 80s-early 90s twin fan with T shaped handle

Thanks Everyone Who Has Commented So Far, Such A Nice Community On Here! Thanks for your nice words aswell. I had no idea about the date until you all pointed out that it is from the 80s. I assumed 70s due to the style. Thanks again for reading everyone! ~Brendan
