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.

    Hi. I have a 1453 with the optional cordwinder.
    It’s so odd yours doesn’t even have the plastic halo on the rear end to wrap the cord manually!
    Did you take your halo off, or did it come that way new?!!
    I have seen the cover of a 1453 owner’s manual with nothing on the back end – very odd.

    The 1453 seems to have better suction than a early 1205, L,E,S,G,LX.

    I have seen cream & dark brown plastic halos for the brown 1453.
