an older Eureka upright from the 60's, either the chrome and turquoise ones or the gold Vanegaurd models, or even any other model with a cord winder.

If somebody can cough up a 60's chrome one or a Vanegaurd with the two speed motor and cordreel, I'll be willing to trade something more valueable if needed to make it an even trade.

The Eureka is in mint condition, there's only a small chip of paint missing on the hood, otherwise it looks unused.

Alex, i have an early 1970s all metal Eureka Vanguard 2 speed with cord reel, and full attachments with the red carrying case,,all in excellent condition. The attachments themselves do show use, but not abuse. The Vanguard has the chrome hood,headlight, and sliding "Rugulator". The machine itself is in excellent condition,,not a scratch on it and runs like new. The plug has been replaced at some point. What do you have that you'd be willing to trade for it? Im looking for an Electrolux Hospital Model G in good condition,,,you wouldnt have one would you?? I hope!!

No hospital G...

as mentioned I have the baby blue 1476-A, and I also have a *mint* Hoover Junior 1348 (creme and avocado green). The vinyl bag is perfect (no tears or fraying), all snaps are working perfectly, the plastic hood is near scratchless, motor runs great, comes with extra C bags, belts, and even a matching avocado green hand grip that slids on and off the handle to preserve the un-worn paint on the handle grip. I also have a 1988 Electrolux special edition upright in grey and burgundy with extra bags, original manual, in mint condition but the switch only works on carpet mode. I also have a (1979) Hoover Concept I, the first model they made. Baby blue base with a two tone blue striped vinyl bag, cord reel, headlight, and Powerdrive. The cord was replaced with a genuine black Hoover cord, comes with some extra bags, needs belts though, and the bearings need grease.

Let me know if you want pics of any of these machines, I might come up with another machine or two for trade, I'll have to look.
