1980 Electrolux 1453 Special

I received this from the son of its original owner, complete with all its tools, manual and paperwork. It was purchased new in 1980 in Branson Missouri. The guy said his mother mainly had bare floors and some area rugs, so the power nozzle had very light use. The cleaner is in pristine condition. This model replaced the old model L in 1979, and was a cheap(er) alternative to the deluxe Olympia One. Its pretty bare bones. While I have never been a huge fan of Electrolux, I am quite fond of this little cleaner.

    Nice machine. The pre-1970 ones I like even better. They’re quieter and I like their soapy rounded corners.

    Thanks for this demo.

    There’s nothing wrong with it, it has good suction, this p/n just was not very aggressive at digging into the carpeting…
