Dyson DC17 and DC28 Airmuscle

American DC07'14/33 vacuums have much stiffer bristles and a larger soleplate gap apparently

Dyson De Stijl vacuums and clear models
 etc
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

A Hoover Celebrity with wheels would be a good find! Cant remember what the americans call them though.
There was a shark cylinder on ebay a few years ago that shouldn't have been. This was before Shark started to be sold in the UK, it was a factory testing mule that got sold. A collector bought it, thought it was ace, and then Shark contacted him, paid him alot of money for it and asked him to take his videos of it off youtube!

You could always just import a US vac, then buy a 110v site transformer to run it

I had a Hoover Convertible once.  found it outside the tip on the entrance road,  with all its tools.  Had a cracked chassis sadly,  I swapped it for something,  cant remember what

What? Go sit in the corner and think about why you didnt buy it.  Easy on ebay at the very least,  even a scruffy one!

BTW this dial a matic had a UK plug fitted to it
I was told there were UK versions but were REALLY rare here but more common in the USA
