Mahan's Linn was definately one of my favorites this year at Macungie.

The Linn, the red V12 Chevy Titan 90, and the all original International electrical contractor's utility bodied truck. Top three.


Hate to get off subject here but I'm with Joe-E, "the all original International electrical contractor's utility bodied truck" was the top for me. Anyone have any pictures of it? The one Jeff posted of Tim Hoover's Autocar was right up there with it.

It's serial #2117.

I sure hope Linntractornut joins back in with his knowledge. He is a wealth of information on Linn tractors.


Me too !

It's serial #2117.
I own #2129 and believe it is a 32.
I own #2073s and think it is a 31 or 32.
I think Mahan's Linn is most likely a 32.

I sure hope Linntractornut joins back in with his knowledge. He is a wealth of information on Linn tractors.

I'm still hoping that if anyone can pin-point the year of this Linn they will step forward and do so.

The story of him acquiring the IH is what keeps everyone hunting.

He went to an auction, he didn't look it over because he had no intention of bidding on it. But he bought it. The odometer only had a few thousand miles on it. Not believing the odometer he called the previous owner to see if he thought it would make the trip home. The reply was the odometer was correct and that if fact no one had ever sat in the jump seat or been in the bunk.

Thursday's rain at Macungie had left some soggy areas in the grounds, and by Saturday evening there were still some soft spots. Doug Richardson found his IH COE and trailer were mired in the mud, and the Linn was employed to pull him out. The 80 year old Linn made it look easy. In case you were wondering, that load of rocks are fakes.

Tony, I'll be posting some more photos from Macungie today, including the IH. It was one of my favorites also.

That cab and style of track adjuster puts it in the 30's. The serial number puts it about 1930 or 1932. I'll let Linntractornut zero in from there. He has access to whatever build records there are left.
