So is that time of year again already and I spoiled myself a bit by winning a bid of another nice vintage vacuum. I was the 2nd bidder. And I wanted one of these models for my collection.

Another great addition to my collection, a Hoover Convertible Estate U4103, the very 1st Hoover upright that features the type A bag system and I think the 2 speed feature. I won this on eBay for about $29.50 as my highest bid and I really like the bag design on this model and the color as well. It also came with the original hose attachment with converter and an all purpose brush.

Have to say this vacuum is in very great shape and condition. Just needs a little wipe up but no biggie at all. The bottoms in nice shape too. Forgot to mention I got this from a eBay seller who is also a member in this website. Forgot his profile name but it will come up.

Serial number is 0091040, probably a mid production run made around 1977. That was the year this model was introduced. Another interesting thing it has is a 6 blade plastic fan!
