Sears Kenmore Kwik Sweep Vacuum Cleaner. 3 speed, bagless. $25 or best offer.

 

This looks like a Regina(?) rebadge from about 1980

That looks like all they did was swap the label and bag pattern. It's even got the Regina orange color and the nozzle graphics. I remember now the one I had was called Kwik Sweep, but it was blue and one speed.

Do you know if they did sell the power nozzle version? These are before my time, and my catalogs from the 90s only have Hoover Kwik Brooms, there were no Kenmore quick brooms by then.

They did have  a model with a power nozzle. 

 

I think there were 3 or 4 models: a suction only 1 speed, a suction only 3 speed, and a model with a power nozzle.

 

This cinnamon color, as I call it, was in their vacuum line-up from mid 1979 to mid 1982. I'd estimate that's when this is from.

 

Here's information from another post here on VL., but I don't see the pn model.

It's been so long I can't remember what mine looked like. I thought it looked more like the 3 speed than that 1 speed as far as the motor housing, but I could be wrong.

My grandma had that cinnamon Regina 3 speed. I used to run it over the kitchen and dining room after dinner. I remember the smell it had to it, I really liked that vacuum. It finally burned out and she got a blue Eureka with a dust cup.

In fact I believe she got that Regina from her sister, along with that blue Kenmore which she gave to me. So they were already really old when she got them. I thought they were mid 80s but apparently older than that.
