Hi again, Don't have the original box or packaging. I assembled it last night and plugged it in for the first time and it ran perfect. I am almost positive its a 1974 promotional item. Bottom bag fill. Bottom of the line whereas bumper guard does not fully go around and no rubber handle grip at top. No light. Again, new out of the box. Perfect condition. Never used unless you factor in the two minutes I tried it out to make sure it worked. If anyone from New England area interested; that would be preferred as to not have to deal with shipping on either end. I am not sure what or how much I should ask for it. I need to do more research but was thinking in the mid 100's or a bit less. Am open to reasonable offers, maybe a trade? Email Thanks for looking and considering.

Thank you! :)

My research led me to believe that yes, the color is called tangerine. So bizarre, no responses or interest and then two people within an hour emailed. I thought that was funny. One ended up not responding and the other is supposed to pick it up this weekend. Yay!

The turquoise dial a matic to YOUR right in your photo; that is exactly like the one I grew up with. My mom always use to say you need to be Hercules to push it around. It was difficult to push actually from what I can remember. Especially across flat or berber type carpets.
