I remember they were used for mail in the 90s. Or were those a different Jeep?

What is that mirror (located above the front-left side fender) that's pointed towards the hood used for?

The mirror is one of those fisheye things. It is used to check that nothing is in front of the jeep below the hood, like a little kid or a dog. Many have another on the rear.

These jeeps are quite common in rural areas, they still use them here. Usually have a 232 motor, and an auto tranny. Almost all are 2 wheel drive, with a posi limited slip in the rear.

But what do I know? I'm old.
