I found this in an old house. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how anything about it. I would like to sell it and want to know what it might be worth.

Your Hoover 28 was produced from 1946 to 1950.

It's nice that you have the attachments and they look like they're in good shape. Sadly the vacuum looks worn and tired. It will probably need at least some attention to make it run well. Though it may run now, it's hard to say if it would be wise to run it for any amount of time.

As for a price, it is worth what someone will pay for it. If you wait about a week, someone here may make you an offer. Otherwise, as a ballpark figure, maybe $50 in its current condition. Pay no mind to ebay listings, as the majority of them are vastly overpriced, and have been for sale for a long period of time because of that.

The vacuum isn't as rough as madman thinks imo. It just look like it's dirty and full of cobwebs and debri. The attachments imo are worth more than the vacuum. I do agree $50. If shipping wasn't going to be a killer you might get $60.

Considering it isnít even the correct color.... itís rough.
Non original bag is what is going to kill this one. To be honest, I probably wouldnít even pick it up if I saw it. Someone can give it the love it deserves. Color matching and repainting is not something I love to get into during a restoration, though.

It would be not easy but no means hard. Cut out the Hoover wrong off the bag and see onto a similar bag. The hood and vacuum body get pain stripper and peel off the paint make sure there's no rust anywhere. Paint it the correct color and you have a hoover in good shape. Finding a Hoover with an original bag on the machine is rare but not for myvacrocks

I'd take I'm not rich now because I'm working on acquiring a dream machine. If you want to ship it to me that would be sweet.
