I've got a Hoover that I don't really want. I mostly picked it up to save it for another collector since they're not really my thing.

It does have it's flaws here's what i've noticed
- Duct tape on the cord
- Scratches on the base/hood
- A crack in the headlight lense
- The adjustment system is stubborn
- A crack in the tool "door"

So it's not a perfect machine clearly. When i bought it the brushroll was seized due to hair under the endcaps that has been dealt with and the brushroll bushings were oiled. Beyond that I really have not done much with it.

Included will be 2 genuine Hoover C bags (white) and 1 spare 3m brand belt

I'm hoping for about 30 or, best offer plus shipping. The box will be 24x16.5x12.5 the vacuum itself weighs about 18 lbs so i'm guessing total ship weight will be 20 or 21.

The link below is a short video I made to better show it's condition.

That was a good vid and nice of you to make it. I think your asking price is very reasonable. If I didn't already have one I'd buy it. That is one of my favorite later convertibles, and it does sound good!

I like people to know what they're getting into when they buy something from me. I figured since I'm no longer so familiar with them a video of it running would be appropriate so people could judge for themselves what they thought of it or at least to get a better idea

Excellent video!

That cleaner saw a good time. It seems that that model was usually beaten to Hell. Are people just careless?
I have a few of them, as well, otherwise, I'd consider it, too.
By the way, nice hands!

Probably, most people think "it's just a vacuum".
Huh, first time i've heard that, thanks.

I tend to notice everything. I don't miss much.

Hi my name is Gabriel and I live in Dallas Texas plus a huge vacuum collector. I watched the video and I was wondering if you still have the vacuum or not. If so, $25 is my best offer and I can pay it through PayPal! I noticed this particular vacuum isnít your thing but I really love the vintage Hoovers and all it needs is TLC. Thank you 🙏
