I assume this is the purple model although it appears to be dark gray.

Obviously that's a replacement hose.

Any way you look at it, the seller has stars in his/her eyes.

Itís definitely a purple sanitizor. Right before the war. They better throw away that white bag, it will kill that machine. It looks like it was only used in someoneís home. It actually appears to be in very nice condition. Iíll make no comment on the price. If someone were to take the time to buff the aluminum, that machine could be a gem. The attachments turn up all the time. Itís in Allentown Pennsylvania, sitting in what looks like a beauty shop. Maybe the ladies used it there to dry their hair? Who knows. if I didnít already have one in the boxÖ..

"This Air-Way is also the Purple 55 fire hydrant style that every vacuum collector wants."

Looks like they spent some hours trolling vacuumland before listing it.

That is a lovely color. I had no idea they did such "Radical" colors of vacuum cleaners that early. Ironic it's the same color purple as the early Shark Navigator lol
