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, giveaways - the Willys Whirl - a country side ride followed by supper.
The show opens to the public at 10 a.m. Grace Arts Center Pavilion in Mills River. The show runs for one day only.
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 Southeast Willys Jeep Get Together is great entertainment for buyers, sellers, serious lookers, Jeeps history buffs and the entire family.”
