Looking for a 1944 truck. We don't care what make, we would like a pick up however we know that is like finding a needle in a haystack so 1 tons, firetrucks anything you find we will look at. Friend has a business that was started in 1944, they would like something from that year, Send me photos of what you may have and we will see if it can be made into something cool for them.
Thank You

War years trucks only sold to high priority customers so they are extremely hard to find. I would use any truck from 1941 to 46 as 99.9999 percent of people now days will never know the difference.
Put 1944 plates on it and call it good!

Also, here's a great Chevy truck out fit in NY:

As you know there was THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE car/truck manufactured after 1942. Ford was building airplanes, Chrysler tanks, and GM several war materiel. A car/truck line DID NOT EXIST. Just find a 1942 truck and register it as a 1944. I use the Oklahoma Title 42 Act for this as you can call it anything as long as you have a law officer verify the serial number. The ones sold as 43, 44, and 45 all use the 42 numbering system. A customer has two 1942 Ford ambulances, one early and one later; the early one has chrome/stainless trim and the later one has all plastic trim.

1954 3106 Carryall Suburban - part of the family for 48 years
1954 3104 5-window pickup w/Hydra-Matic - part of the family for 14 years
Z-series (54/55) GMC 350 (2-ton) COE - now part of Dave's family
- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

You might consider other old military vehicles as well. Willys MB's and Ford GPW's were made through 45. Lots of them still around in various stages of condition.
