Same price as its model number!
It looks a lot better than mine did but I liked the price of my one better.
The Duster seems to be the only Hoover where there is no distinction between US and Canadian body serial numbers: This is model 200 1156896, mine (Marked as an empire product for made in Canada) is 115561. Normally a Canadian Hoover has an H for Hamilton in the body serial. The motor number on mine has an HM prefix but that's it.

Minor confusion

scoover's profile picture
Just to confuse things a little, here's a picture of vintagehoover's Minor 200 serial number (the Duster was sold in the UK as the Minor, er that is apart from mine which was sold as a Duster although its got a higher serial number than this Minor...) what was going on?

Hoover Duster/Minor

Delighted to see one more has gone to a great home! Although a number have come out of the woodwork over the year, I havenít seen one sold in the UK under the Duster name, so this is extremely interesting!

It's very odd.

Something very strange seemed to have happened with the Duster/Minor. I don't understand why Hoover produced it at all given how quickly they deleted it from their home market. I wonder if they thought they were onto a winner, struggled to sell them and used the US made bodies they'd stockpiled for all markets.

No way of knowing I suppose. I do like them though, quirky isn't the word for it.

Great website BTW.
