2017 Southeast Willys Jeep Get Together – the only Willys event in South – opens to the public October 7

MILLS RIVER, October 7, 2017 — Old Willys Jeeps from 1941-1964 will be on display at the 2017 Southeast Willys Jeep Get Together including military, CJs, wagons, truck, and forward control among others.

More than 30 Willys Jeeps will be on display representing originals, restorations and modified in varying conditions from ‘rust buckets to trailer queens’. Activities include tech session, lunch 'n learn, trophies and giveaways.

The show opens to the public at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at the Grace Arts Center Pavilion in Mills River. The show runs for one day only. More than 30 old Willys Jeeps will be in one location with something for everybody, including the popular World War II restoration and civilian models from 1941-1964.

The original Willys Jeep was created for the military during WWII and is a great American success story. The original Willys Jeep was designed in only 18 hours and the prototype arrived only 30 minutes before the government deadline. 660,703 Jeeps were built for World War II. Gen Dwight D. Eisenhower listed the Jeep among the three primary tools that helped win WWII. Willys was a record breaking independent auto manufacturer and was assembled in 22 countries. Jeep celebrated its 75th Anniversary just last year, with events all around the world.

Will Springer, event organizer for the Southeast Willys Jeep Get Together annual auto event, said, “The 2017 Southeast Willys Jeep Get Together is shaping up to be another exciting event, with registrants coming from many states. You can pop the hoods and kick the tires. It’s great entertainment for serious lookers, Jeeps history buffs and the entire family.”
