Hi guys, so I was looking at vintage vacs on eBay and somehow I came across this bizarre looking Sunbeam touch n go vac that looks to be rare and very interesting looking. Anybody know about these rare vacuums? I never seen this before.

I just threw away six packs of bags for that machine since I didn't think anyone would ever want them. I did keep one pack of the genuine bags "just in case".

about 1965. I have a Alden's catalog with one in it from 65. I know of only one person that has a perfect working one.

Alex Braun has a perfect working one. The belt that drives the brush is like a rubber band.

I have one as well, and I think I have an original pack of bags for it that a friend found and gave to me. It's an interesting little machine, picks up fairly well. I heard there was also a yellow version without a rotating brush but I have never seen one.

I had one

Years ago with a bad motor, still wish I had saved it.
