|Model G - 1960
The G still retained the basic look of the AE and AF except it was more streamlined
in the rear with an integrated cord winder rather than being stuck on and looking
like an afterthought.
The first G also featured a fun 1960s, very Jetsons-like color scheme of two-toned
turquoise. Also had a power nozzle with its own wand with a white plastic sheath
and white housing with turquoise bumper that completely encircled the motor unit.
The early G, like the AF and R, had one long cord for the power nozzle that
went from the power nozzle wand, clipped onto the hose, and plugged into the machine.
There was no way to disconnect the power nozzle at the handle. You had to unclip
it from the hose and remove the whole thing.
The other way to identify the earliest G is that the power nozzle plug went
into the lower part of the front cover, just below the front-cover hinge. Also,
the front outer wheels were right at the front of the machine, just behind the
Model G - 1962
A few slight but important modifications: Power nozzle cord can now be disconnected
at hose handle end so you dont have to completely remove the cord from the
hose when you disconnect the power nozzle.
P/N cord now attaches to hose with more secure rubber straps instead of plastic
clips that tended to slip off. Also, the power nozzle outlet was moved to front-side
of machine and front wheels moved back about two inches to accommodate the side-mounted
power nozzle outlet.
New electric cord with Electrolux logo instead of generic Belden end.
New, enlarged turbo tool, called "Rug Washer," is just a rug shampooer
and floor polisher. No more drills and sanders
Hospital G - 1964
The first Hospital model. Same machine as the turquoise G but
it is white with white and turquoise trim and has a special, large filter
that fits on the blower end of the machine to filter the exhaust air and to make the motor have a softer sound. (Since the G already is perhaps the softest-sounding vacuum cleaner you will ever come across, the Hospital G is so soft that when it runs, the only sound you hear is air rushing through the floor nozzle.)
Model G - 1967
The last G was bronze in color with white trim. Hose: Off-white
with pairs of gold stripes spaced about an inch apart.
Hospital G - 1968
The second Hospital model. Same machine as the bronze G but it
is white with white and brown trim and has the same special, large filter that
fits on the blower end of the machine. Very, very, very rare...!!
