No, not that...or that either...and certainly not that!

As far far away as West Chicago, tho.

The first one I got had no nozzle, the second one I got had no squeegee brushes. The third one had all that and it was blue.

I'd made up a bojack nozzle brush for the first one, the second still has no squeegee brush plate and the blue one works perfectly just as designed.
Dear Fred understands just how much I adore these machines and a wee whoile back promised me one of his extras.

It took ages to get here and is worth every hurdle we had to leap to get it here safe and sound...

Thank You Fred!

Its just lovely. It's the cleanest one inside I've ever seen. The outside needs the full spa treatment.

Folks, the 1959 Hoover Model 3500 Floorwasher/Dryer.

Hoover's answer to the hands & knees drudgery of washing and drying your floors.

That looks like the one I used to have. I found it at a thrift store for 5 dollars. Unfortunately it was years ago and didn't know what I had so I threw it out because it was dirty..

I'm With You Dave

A big fan of the Floor Washer. I searched and searched for one and then a whole pack of them fell in my lap. Long story. Here are some of the six or eight I found. Yours is one of the last ones. It will clean up beautifully since it was hardly used but not stored well. If it doesn't work well, I'll send you the last one I have. Glad to see it going to a good home and someone who appreciates it! Here is a shot of some of the cleaned up ones from the same litter!

Fred Said Floppy Slippers!

I love the picture of the Floorwasher Quads, Fred.

Excellent video showing a blue one in action.

There used to be another one that included filling the water jug and then later emptying the waste water bag but I can't find that one.
