Iíve been putting off posting pics of this Elux upright until now. I donít understand why they messed up the color scheme for this upright . It should have fully complimented the color of the Silverado Deluxe. Okay that was my gripe session on one the least popular Vacuums created by Electrolux. No thread hi jackin please! Thanks 😊

Has this vacuum ever been powered on. Was this NIB because it doesn't look like it's ever seen dirt. It's kind of boxy but it's in immaculate shape and I'd live one.

The Lux is wonderful! And it HAS been used! Look at the pics with the converter in the bag opening. I had an older version of this. Great catch!

Guys thanks for the feedback! Yes the camera did actual justice for this machine because it has been used. I believe the cord is a replacement.

You should find a junky one and then Krylon it to the proper colors it should have been, maybe custom logos too match it, would be a cool project.

I just got one myself back in winter, but an older model. Fantastically clunky and obtuse in that late 70's way. It's just really cool how they say ELECTROLUX in big lettering on the front, a very unique vacuum.

I think the upright conversion kits for this series of uprights is rare as well, you don't seem to find them often - I guess nobody really bothered with it.

Yeah, I was noticing the plug--three prongs with the ground missing--and wondering what was up with it. I had assumed perhaps it was a commercial variant but it being a replacement cord also makes sense. In all, a very nice example.
