The basis of it is a Mack "AB" series truck frame. From the looks I'd place it in the mid 20's to early 30's as built. Whether it was a fire apparatus or not I can't tell but as mentioned the Mack museum can.

I agree with rob, what you most likely have here is an AB chassis, as to what the truck started out as, is as already stated a call/letter to the mack museum will likely help fill in the blanks. Here are some photos of some AB's and older one (circa 1909) and a later model displaying the 5 spoke wheels you mentioned.A truck this old may even still have a photo on record in "as built" or "as delivered" mack was really good at keeping records on damn near everything they built,so i'm sure the museum will be your best bet at an I.D........Mark

Mack Truck literate. Computer illiterate.
