I saw this at my friend's thrift store today - the Plaid Tag at NE corner of Ave K (Plano rd) and Park, next to Poor Richards Cafe.
Looks like from the 1990's, model 53283-040. Made in USA, so it has to be old AND well made!

Overall well taken care of - hose is good, all attachments are there.
"Quadraflex" floor unit, the cord rewinder worked but needed some finagling to get the last foot in.

Unit ran great, sounded healthy, is very quiet; everything rather clean for its age, indicator lights all seemed to work, and even the headlight worked.

Someone MUST want this for his or her collection, especially to satisfy the one who wants a computer in their vacuum...

Only 17.99; pics below.
If you want it, go get it soon before the contractors get it to suck up drywall dust...

Very nice looking vaccum. For the price, I'm surprised someone hasn't snagged it yet.

Gmarquez, I know the feeling; things you want are not always in the right place. Had that happen to me a lot.
Too bad you do not have a friend or relative passing through who could snag it for you. Shipping it would be prohibitive, probably 5x the cost of the unit now.

Not sure where you are located but Iím in Ripon. This is not the electronic model, but itís mint and sitting on a shelf if youíre interested let me know. Would love to see it in the hands of someone who really wants it.

Hi Gman, thatís so kind of you Iíd love to have it! Iím not far away at all I live in Sacramento so it wouldnít be any issue for me to drive down and pick it up. My email is if youíd like to email me privately we can set up a time for me to come grab it. Thanks so much!!

to the two G-guys...

I sure hope this works out. Nothing like being able to get your dream machine, well cared for, with the box, and no crazy shipping cost to boot!
It will have made this thread well worth me posting..
