I have a 1944 Ford Fire Truck and would like to know where I can find an official list of Ford production numbers for 1944 and 1945.

Try the AACA Library where we house the literature for the Fire Apparatus Society. Contact Chris Ritter, Librarian or do an on-line search request found at AACA Library

More than likely what you have is a fire truck that began its life as a military fire truck which may have been built by the likes of American LaFrance, Seagrave, Darley, Hahn, Maxim, Cayaster, or even the Army's Quartermaster Corps on a chassis more than likely produced in 1941 or very early 1942 though the unit itself may have actually been produced in 1944 or 1945 as you must think.

Assuming the absence of Ford Patent plate info you'll probably have to track it down on the basis of the fire equipment manufacturer. These two sites may help.
