Bill,

My buddy just picked up this trailer and I was wondering if you or anyone

else could shed a little light on it.

The VIN plate is hand stamped with the following info:

Hayes, 1856, T-121149, 6-7-46

Somewhere along the line someone has stuck a Fruehauf axle under

there.







1950 Fruehauf 32FT. flatbed, 1951 White WC22PLT Sleeper

Sorry I've maxed out my image space, but H.H. Linn had used trailers with his varoius homebuilt vehicles in New England to haul his dog & pony show equipment, then once he came to Morris they originally advertised building "Farm and Road Tractors & Trailers". In 1929, after swopping stock with Republic Motor Truck and the tractor plant became a division of Republic, American LaFrance swallowed Republic and Linn, and H.H. Linn sort of got shoved aside. He went to Paris, bought a patent for a small 1/4 ton two point hitch single wheel trailer he dubbed the "U-Can-Back" and came back and started a trailer company that built up to 25 ton trailers, on wheels or tracks, and even a glass thermos bottle like milk tanker, in the West End of nearby Oneonta, NY. By the mid 1930's business slowed down but by then he was involved with the tractor company again. When he was killed here in a plane crash in 1937, his widow hired Arthur Perkins who had built enclosed camping/sales office/display "Unadilla" trailers in nearby New Berlin, but other than military applications they never built regular commercial freight trailers after that.

   Consultant on all things Linn tractor/Trailer/Van made in Morris or Oneonta, NY, and can email data, analyze photos, parts recognition etc. And general fan of old snowplow and logging equipment.

I've used up my allotted image space I guess, but c. 1960 my Grandfather Elliott bought a 25' Edwards single axle produce hauling trailer (built in Detroit, not South Bend as earlier ones were, has a Custom Cartage Co. logo visible under the paint)) with the folding metal tailgate (still have that but rusted solid, I found it underneath after the flood of 2006), from a justice of peace down in Grand Gorge who delivered it on a sunday figuring no cops would bother him as it was unlicensed, that my grandparents used for years to store spare lumber and hay for the horse and ponies. I figure it will last another ten years but when it comes out I expect it will be scrapped unless someone wanted to restore and preserve it.

Bill: Thanks for the Ohio trailer. Dad bought a new Ohio Body 14" closed box for a new Dodge straight in 1948. I (age 16) went wtih him to the factory to have the body mounted. I was as proud as I could be as it replaced a 1940 Chev. with 12' open top box. I delivered a lot of freight wityh it. Glee
