From my collection of cleaners I will sell the Electrolux Model VI marked 626 , a rare model , being like a model V but with a shoulder strap, shorter hose and no sleight. I found only three commercials of the era picturing it.
I did not attempted to power it up as it is 105 - 115 V and my country is 220V since 1939.

Power cord and plug seem to be original. It has good condition floor brush, carpet large T nozzle, upholstery small T nozzle (not pictured), wall and curtain round brush (most of the bristle hair is lost on this one). Also features a dust bag that I washed and looks like new.
The hose is chromed but has some rust. Will require some polishing with a wire brush to make it look better. I never got the time to do that.

The price is 99 Euros , bank transfer or Pay Pal

I put it on sale here

It can be dispatched to any European country (EU and non EU) by DPD for 30 Euros.

I hope you realize shipping from Hungary to the US will be expensive. People in the UK is the collectors I'd target.
Nice vacuum.

Budapest isn't Bucharest my bad.

Romania is still not even remotely close to the United States.
Maybe I was hungry when I posted but there 399 miles apart. Its over 5000 miles away his target audience is still over the pond or over the mountain range. Nobody further than 2000 miles away will even consider paying for shipping.

Euros isn't the main currency of Romania. The official currency is Romanian Leu not the Euro.
Quite a contradiction.
Your welcome.

Glad to hear from you.
I am located in Romania, Bucharest. Shipping 10 Kg package to any location in United States is 68 $ . Which does not seem to expensive.

To ship to UK is about 36 $ and the price that I want of 99 Euros converts to about 119 $ so we have all the expenses in USD , the rate changes every day by +/- 1%

Yes, the Romanian official currency is Leu which means "lion". Pay Pal account is in Euro. Also most bank accounts are in Euro but if you buy groceries you pay in Leu. As we are part of the European Union since 2007 and supposed to adopt the Euro currency fully by 2024, some of the prices are already in Euros, like the fees for cable TV, internet, mobile phone, also if you buy an apartment or a house, a piece of land or a car, the prices are already in Euro.

This is very cool! Even the Model V is extremely hard to find. I never even heard of a Model VI (would have assumed this to be simply a version of the V, as there were several versions including detachable runners, fixed runners, different badges).


So tempted.

I thought the whole brexit did away with Euro being the main currency in United kingdom.
I hope you find a good home for it.
