The Good and the Interesting things about the truck
made in 1947 in Oneonta NY
The Linn company closed in 1954 .
According to the manufacturer you can simply unbolt the motor and transmission from frame and pull them out the front as a whole unit with a floor jack for servicing or exchange as pictured below
This van had been sitting for a while before i got it .It did not run at the time basically it was just asleep from non use, he previous owner had passed o, but during his ownership used it for a camp on his property
The van was on blocks and the wheels stored in shed.the person who purchased the property had put the wheels back on an sold it to me.
I got it running buy just freeing up and cleaning lifters,starter,carb etc and and basic weatherizing  , In my opinion, t wouldn't take much to be a road worthy truck again .
The motor and transmission are in running order .
Hercules starts eas, shifts good
The roof has never leaked,exhaust is quie, oil is fresh.sounds good and has plenty of power
I have only drivin it around my yard,
There is a video on you tube .the brakes pump up and seem to be workin, it starts right up all the time .the 750 x 20 tires hold air .It has been wired with 3 recepticalcs each side on ceiling for AC hence front plugin very handy
The wooden floor is in nice shape except for a 4" round hole cut out in rear corner
The steering works good has around 33000 miles on it .Wind shield looks good
The floor is solid the doors open .
It is currently used by me on a daily basis as a tool van .
I will remove all my stuff when sold.
