In an effort not to hi-jack Loggah's thread on his Lombard and  the work he did and shared with us
I thought this would be in order.

Do you have pictures with a snow plow on one ?

That is probably the best linn documention out there, even if they have a few lombard pictures described as Linns :D .My1925 Linn was originally a plow truck for the city of morris N.Y., was rebuilt in 1931 and was sold to Ford & Smiley Linn and Buick dealers in Skowhegan Maine. They sold it to Joe Chinchette  a maine contractor and was used for hauling and snowplowing. Joe Chinchette 's business is still going strong with family members,it is now "CHINBRO" bridge and highway contractors. Don

I'm liking both of these threads. Keep the history coming! I appreciate the work you're both putting out to us, thank you!
I like anything that's old, and mechanical, agricultural, or industrial. Old mills, machine shops, beekeeping, sugarmaking, blacksmithing, whitesmithing, woodworking

now I have this overwhelming urge to build something very similar. I happen to have a 1987 Jeep comanche 2wd metric ton with a straight 6 in it. I bet that would be a fun platform to start with :)
I knew what I thought I meant.

A few years ago a person in Canaan had a old cletrac crawler,took out the engine and radiator ,and grafted the front of a small toyota  ,or datsun pickup to the front of it. I dont think it would steer very quickly unless he made up linkage from the steering brakes and put it into the cab, i didn't check it out that close. Don

Loggah  , Morris is no city! Lol it's a small town about 15 miles from here. I need to stop and take a picture of the one they have on display in town.
Together we got this !
