I cant believe how hard a time I had finding photos of something that used to be so ubiquitous and quintessentially American.  I still get excited when I see the mailman coming in anticipation of a postcard, letter, or new magazine.  Derek Redmond has a great site with a ton of photos and information on the CJ-3B and all of its variations (The above photos are all found his site).  Check it out, it’s a guaranteed work-stopper.

    I have wanted a right-hand-drive postal jeep since I was 12 years old. By golly, I need one. Hey, thanks for the link by the way!
