This from Mike Summa:

Here is a picture of Oak Lawn Truck 12, a 1970’s rear mount aerial.  This was built by American Fire Apparatus of Battle Creek, Michigan. I believe this was built on a low-profile Oshkosh chassis.  Enjoy and comment.

Hello,
Here is a photo of an early Oak Lawn truck.  Again, I’m sorry that I have no specs on it.  I know that it’s on a Pierce Arrow chassis.  If anybody knows anything more about it, please feel free to advise.  Thank you, hope you enjoy.
