Hello everyone, I am trying to get some info on the red hoover runabout. My grandma had one when I was a kid and it disappeared as I grew up. I am wanting one and have been on the hunt for years now. Luckily I have found 2 online but they are different, one is almost identical to the one I remember as a kid (1st Pic), except it has a the outer bag as a non-zip and hers had the zipper along the side.

The first picture I am uploading is one that looked like hers but this one doesn't have the bag hers had. The second picture is her bag but not the bottom half of hers. If you took the bag from the second picture and put it on the first picture's machines it would be her vacuum. In picture 3 you can see the "Allergen Filtration" label on the vacuum, I believe hers had this as well.

I am thinking I might buy the first pic vac and keep it because it is the closest to the original one I remember. I'll hope for the best that I can find an outer bag to eventually replace it with. Or buy picture 2 vac and swap bags, even though it's, not the exact one I am wanting because it is missing the label.

If anyone has any pictures information I would appreciate it or of course that exact one for sale, I wouldn't mind discussing it!

Thank You all
