Wow that's a great deal. Fully restored and assembled you can get that much back and more for each individual vacuum.

I love the hose that's standing upright like a cobra under the spell of a snake charmer! Of course, that tells you a lot about the condition of the hose.

Electrolux Database?

I purchased this collection of Electrolux vacuums and parts, and I would like to make some sort of inventory of model numbers. What is the best database that lists model numbers, years of manufacture, etc.?

I'm looking to save 1 or 2 for myself, and selling and/or parting out the remainder.

Listing also to Any questions, either reply here, or directly to my email.

The first thing I would do is to separate out the pre-war XXX's from the post-war XXX's. Flat runners with no saloon doors is early. Exhaust located at lower third of rear end is the earliest (1937-1938). Those will also have the basket filter instead of the flat rear filter. The pre-war models are the most valuable.

I would immediately take that XXX with the chrome cordwinder off the top of that very early pre-war model on the bottom.

Can you post pictures of the two filter types? Just want to make sure that I know what I am looking at.

I have 9 hoses that have both ends securely connected. 3 of them are plastic hoses, so they must have been rebuilt. As for the 6 cloth-covered hoses, is there a reliable way to check if they are airtight? I'm not seeing any physical damage, and they are all flexible.
