I saw one of these at a garage sale some time ago. I thought for sure it was green but thought my memory was wrong and it was actually teal because I've never seen another in hunter green until this eBay listing.

What year was this made? I notice the attachments seem different than most Concept One tools I've seen. It has simple friction fit hose end and the attachments and hose material look like what comes with Elites. Although I can't quite place the floor brush as I think most of the Elite kits never had one.

I do like it in this color though, makes it have a bit of a more modern look, like an Elite or PowerDrive.

That floor brush is not even Hoover... I'm not too sure, but I'd bet that hose may be a creation of some kind rather than an official Hoover offering. But it is possible this was something they sold later on in the run. It also may have been a lower end tool set, with the one you and I have being the nicer option at additional cost? We'll have to wait for a Hoover expert to know for sure!

That was one of....

If not the last Hoover Concept One. Dates from the early 90s. The attachment set is very late too, Hoover cheapened things so terribly by this point. I have also seen one similar in all black. I don't remember the difference between this teal model and the black, but it was also one of the very last too.

Teal was lower end with cord wraps and black was high end with cord winder.
