    Very interesting artwork on this Jeepster. My 1960 Surrey has Daffy Duck in a sailor suit on each side of the body. The owner who had it before me had it painted on. He also had a orange CJ 3A with a cartoon bear on it. He owned Pioneer Jeep Garage in Peabody, MA. He also had a Maverick Station wagon with a cartoon figure painted on it. Since Amherst, NH is not very far away, I am wondering if this Jeepster ever visited Pioneer Jeep Garage or was ever owned by that Garage. Would be cool to find out if it was, and the cartoons were painted by the same artist.

    I always imagined if papa Smurf could drive, it would be a Willys “Crackerbox”wagon. I painted a few cartoon characters on my vehicles, my 1962 Willys blue & white wagon, of course has Smurfs painted on the rear windows.
    Some vehicles just seem to lend themselves to be associated with certain cartoon characters, an example of this is when a cartoon of the 1930’s, had happy elves bottling sunshine in glass milk bottles and delivering the bottled sunshine in cartoon like Divco milk trucks. The cartoon title is ” The Sunshine Makers”. Not all of the copies feature the Divcos, that was inserted after the Borden Milk Co. realized the connection. and it worked, always one of my favorite cartoons as a kid, and still is.
    Another example is a commercial from the 1990’s for twister’s candy, Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head drive a Nash Metropolitan.

    Colin: Good thinking. That would be fun to find out. Maybe the seller knows?
