No reason to think it’s a ’41. It might have an f-head engine. It has a GPW body.

“1941 Willys MB. An American icon and hero. She served in WW II transporting Marine officers. She was dismantled and reassembled to serve our country again in the Korean War. Her 4WD will take you anywhere. All boxes and accessories are period correct. Please look at pictures. I get comments everytime I drive her. I hate to pass her on, but I no longer have the garage space to store her. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of USA history!”

“Great Fun! Has been in the family over 40 years. It runs, has full roll bar, front and back towing. 2 sets of tires and rims. It has been kept in storage. My father told me it was a 4 cylinder plymouth engine. It is a 4 wheel 3 speed. It has very low mileage. Enjoyable as it is or easily made to look like new. No cracks in the windshield. The original serial numbers are on the under carriage with the 5 pointed star at the beginning and end of the sequence. It has a clear title and has been put on non-op as I cannot drive it anymore because of numerous back surgeries. I will miss it. I learned to drive on it when I was 9 years old. I hope to find it a good home. Some seal are dry and need greasing. You can make an appt to see it. Contact me through my email.”
