Billy Goat Lawn Vacs Over the Years

Does anyone here have a first-generation Billy Goat lawn vacuum that was made in 1966-67 (1969-70 for the first KDs)?

The company was founded in 1966 by William W. "Bill" Coates III (1937-2014) and was at first a subsidiary of Clipper Manufacturing. The first model to be sold was the BG series, designed for picking up leaves on hard concrete surfaces only.

In 1969, after Billy Goat had disassociated from Clipper, production began on the smaller KD (from "kid," referring to, of course, a baby goat) series which was marketed for consumers and could be had with 3 to 5 hp Briggs & Stratton or Tecumseh engines.
