Jeep dealers advertise new ones for sale. My rural carrier drives a fairly late model RHD Jeep Wrangler. The years have always been kind to the Wrangler series, so it's hard to tell how old it is. It's difficult to cut one in two to count the rings. I think hers came from Toledo that way, but I have also seen conversions with a bicycle chain and sprockets between the steering columns.

Since Subaru makes many of their vehicles in Japan, where they drive on the "wrong" side of the road, they were also popular with mail carriers. I understand that they are no longer importing them due to crash safety standards. Not worth the expense for the limited sales numbers.
A friend of Doc's. NOT Darren's Doc. Doc is a B-29 bomber restored by volunteer labor at the local Boeing plant over a 15 year period. FiFi is the only other B-29 still flying.

Crash safety standards are a malleable thing depending on the planned yearly sales. I could see artificially capping the units sold but I can't see outright halting imports unless NHTSA outright forbade it.
Okay... There's all kinds of things wrong with what you just said.

They were offered for a while-I have seen a few...always RHD Legacy wagons.
