There is a vintage Kirby Vacuum model 511 for sale for $100. It has all attachments even a floor polisher and am wondering if it is a good buy for that price

It is. I actually contacted the seller and she said it would cost too much to ship.
It's the complete vacuum and in excellent condition.

only the red box of attachments goes to that 511. none of the classic omega stuff you want. thats from a vacuum 22 years newer and that miracle head will not work on a 511.

What works

Everything highlighted will work and original to the vacuum. The bag itself is worth the cost. The other like attachments will work with any kirby.
You could even resell the classic and classic omega make some money back.
I told the seller I'd pat for shipping probably $200 and asking price.
