Something that crosses my mind alot when usually thinking about rare vacuums. Over the years i've seen several rare variants of rather common machines I had never seen before. Anybody know of any rare colored machines that are hard to find on the internet? Like for instance, is there a bright red Eureka Boss Bravo? I know there is a red Bravo soft bag, but I wonder if they labeled any the boss. Just to thrown an example. I always found this to be an interesting topic when talking about rare vacuums. Like limited editions almost.

The one that pops in my mind are the Panasonics that used the petrol green color in their Performance Plus Platinum line.

I wish I could post a picture, but my phone is just too old and can't do half of what it used to.
But, there's someone I saw on the western mass Craigslist, selling a Hoover Decade and a Eureka 1447 upright. The Eureka, based on the colors, looks to be probably late 1980s/early 1990s. Or, I could be way off.
The hood and the design on the bag are sort of a dusty rose color.
I don't think I've ever seen one that color. It looks like a fairly low-end model, but the color sells it for me.
If it was closer to me, and they weren't asking $175, I'd be tempted.

Pink Dirt Devils perhaps? They made several models in pink. They sold little amounts of each.

I had that teal Easy Lite, but gave it to someone else who needed it quite awhile ago, only had it for like a year.

Eureka 1447

Here's the best I could do, trying to get a picture of the Eureka I mentioned in the earlier post.
In hindsight, I don't know if it is a dusty rose/pink color. Maybe it's the darker color that this model usually is, and it's just a bad picture.

Is the teal Featherlite, I've been trying to track one down for quite a while. That color, the pink and blue seem to be a WalMart exclusive around back to school across a number of manufacturers they partner with.

To me it's this straight suction Kenmore in translucent red and grey. I wish I still had this machine.

One that comes to mind is a Hoover Self Propelled Windtunnel in a very rare red metallic color. Iíve only ever seen one in person, at a thrift store last summer. And one photo posted here in another thread. It seems the color was called Garnet Metal.
