Jim,
 Your 27” was sold on a military contract to South West Truck (SWT) for an  off-road mobile machine shop.
Most of the 27” were made for the military .

Ted,
Many thanks.  That clears up a lot.

As an aside, I called SB/Grizzly to get the lathe "build card", but not really expecting success.  They were courteous and helpful, certain that they had cards on file "for every lathe they ever made".  But after a couple days they acknowledged they did not have one for this lathe though they did say the SN (00120SWT) was valid.

Thanks again,
Jim
