The manufacturer is FWD - now a part of Oshkosh

Added by Phil Gilson on 28 November 2013.
Wrong, FWD Corp. acquired Seagrave in 1963, FWD then became a division of FWD/Seagrave Corp., manufacturing of non fire chassis and special order fire chassis were available through 1980s, since early 1990s FWD has been an inactive brand under Seagrave Fire Apparatus, INC.
Recently Seagrave has started building AWD chassis again: see Unified Fire Authority, Salt Lake Co., UTAH.
OSHKOSH is well-known as the owner of Pierce.

Thanks Warren - Must have been the thought of too much turkey confusing my brain.

Further research would indicate that this is a 1961 with a 65 ft. Pitman Snorkel, orig. Wyoming, MI.
