I remember a neighbor having an all white Hoover Convertible, if I remember correctly it was a round hood model. I have not come across any all white hoover convertibles. Maybe it was a Penncrest made by Hoover?

Any information is appreciated.

Thank you.

The only ones I have ever seen were from the Hoover vault finds.
Here is an example of the models you may be talking about. They were Penncrest models.
The one on the left was very bottom of the line (if I remember correctly) and only featured one cord hook. There was no winding up the cord, just bunch and set it on the hook. Interesting, right?

And, I have one of them. It's been seen in a few photos of my previous mini meets.

A couple other possibilities, if you're not thinking snow white, are what Hoover called light seal greige or light taupe—which were both off-white.

I'm thinking of the Model 706 in light and dark seal greige (albeit with Persian gold trim and bag) or the Model U4003 "Convertible Elite" in shades of taupe (the "horseradish" nick of the condiment-colored group).

The 706 photo is from an eBay listing. The U4003 photo was originally posted by former Vacuumland poster 1926700.

Thank you everyone, it definitely was the first picture and the vacuum on the right...I just assumed at a young age it was a Hoover Convertible, but that is the exact model. Thank you again.

All White convertible...

Yes,there was!The color was called Artic White.It looked like a ghost.Even,the attachments were white.It was made for Peggy Lee,who loved white.She was a friend of the Hoover's and only a very few where made or even exist today.There might have been one in the vault.Who know's.Everything on the machine matched in color.
