Brian Kelly jumped on this one 1st and had the correct answer too ! This all wheel drive fire truck is a 1965 FWD FF4. I can't say whether Hahn, Seagrave, or any other company was involved. FWD does not mention any other company in the ads below, other than to say the pumps are by Waterous. Thanks to Bill White for the photo and Dan Souday for the ads below.

In 1965 my older brother worked at FWD building firetrucks. From memory, he worked in "cab fab" building cabs for P2 crash trucks. I don't recall that Seagrave was in the picture at that point, but about 1970, my dad and I went to their scrap/salvage yard to buy steel drop for a home project and I remember seeing flathead V12s (from memory they looked like Seagraves I've seen recently) sitting around in various states of disassembly. My dad thought warranty returns.
