IHC didn't date codes so to get closer you divide how many trucks made that year by 12 for guess on month, assuming same amount were built each month,
or by 52 to guess which week, assuming the same amount were built in a week all year, closest you will get,

according to data base, 10,810 trucks were built in 1941, divide by 12 is 900 per month, or 207 per week,

your serial number of 6789 means your truck was 3,787th truck built in 1941, average 900 per month puts your truck built last part of April 1941,

average 207 per week put your truck made 18th week of the year more or less, which would be mid to late April,

Perfect, thanks for the confirmation on my original estimate.

Amazing. And I thought interpolation was a lost art.
