So I have an interesting topic to talk about. I noticed some interesting things about the model 858 Hoover Constellation. There are like 3 different colors of this model. Orange, yellow, and green. Anybody knows about this particular model?

Scratch off the yellow Constellation, that was actually a model 843. eBay seller did a typo.😑 But the other 2, orange and green are the 858.

This thread has some info. It seems the first 858 was the pumpkin with seal greige, then pumpkin with medium taupe and later poppy red on top in 1974. Not sure where the green fits in but apparently the last Canadian Constellations had lime green (model 888).

I noticed some pumpkin 858 have "60 cycles" on the bottom rating plate, where later ones read "60 hertz" instead.

The tilted Constellation started out as a rebadged cleaner for JC Penney in white/orange. (I have one of these). Later Penneys switched to another style of Constellation and Hoover reused the tilted version under their models.

The Penncrest version says "Penncrest Canister" around the hose opening.
