We got an early 500 series Kirby.
The nozzle is specifically a 508 - 512 nozzle. I can tell by the lines on the front. As well as the rug plate.
The emtor is a 3C - 505 emtor.
3C - early 513 handle grip.
514 & 515 handle fork.
Aftermarket belt lifter.
All replacement red trim, bag, cord, etc.

That could be a 505, or it could be something newer with an older emtor on it. Not sure exactly.

The headlight has some newer rivets holding the trim on. There’s a chance it was modified by a vac shop with those newer rivets to be able to take the newer style trim. Since models 508 and older (down to the 2C) had the smaller trim that only covered the very front of the headlight hood.
