I've lost the page, but in one of the threads from Elliot's website he says it's a 1941 Jimmy.

All horizontal bars in the grille = GMC.

All our Jimmys seem 1969+. Was there a different name this early?? This seems to be our only other 1941 pickup, model unknown.

From wikipedia:
"The 1941-45 GMC models were sold as C-Series and became the E-Series for the 1946 and 1947 model years (CC-Series / EC-Series for the conventional cab models and CF-Series / EF-Series for the COE ones)."

It does look like the larger CCKW military trucks were nicknamed "Jimmy", so maybe the owner is confused:

Found the reference page again - "I’ve been asked about the ’41 Jimmy pickup that appears in the Home in October film. I drove it from Los Angeles to Long Island, in 1980...."

Was Jimmy simply a nickname for any GMC, like Caddy for Cadillac, Studie for ... (and so on)??

"Jimmy" could be a reference to the engine, as in this 1954 issue of Popular Mechianics.

According to this article, yes:

"No possible names were fielded for the potential Wrangler-fighter, but one we’d love to see make a return is “Jimmy.” Much like “Hummer” was a derivation of Humvee, which itself was a verbalization of the acronym HMMWV, “Jimmy” was at one time a general nickname for all GMC trucks"
