2019 Willys Jeep Reunion May 17-18 Aurora, OH

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features

UPDATE: Reminder that the Willys Reunion takes place this coming weekend. No, we won’t be there, but a bunch of other folks plan to go.


The 27th Annual Willys Jeep Reunion will be held May 17-18 at the Bertram Inn in Aurora, Ohio. As usual, we expect to see in excess of 100 Jeeps in attendance. Plus, at the swap meet, there will be vendors from all over the country selling New-Old-Stock and good used parts to help you with your restoration project or to find that rare replacement part you have been hunting for. Who knows what treasures and bargains you might unearth there?

At the Saturday night banquet, our guest speaker will be Jeff Nelson, creator and curator of the “When Wagoneers Roamed the Earth” display that garnered so much attention at the 2018 Toledo JeepFest.

This year’s tech presentation also promises something special too. Well known Willys Jeep collector and restoration expert, Joe Deyoung, will be demonstrating the rebuilding of a Borg-Warner T-90 transmission under the big tent. We will not only be raffling off the transmission that he rebuilds, but we will also be raffling off two chances for you to bring your own T-90 and work alongside Joe and other volunteers to rebuild your transmission — with a master kit provided by the Willys Reunion. The teardown of the transmissions will take place on Friday and the reassembly will be on Saturday.

Of course, like last year, we will host a drive/caravan and a picnic on Friday night. On Saturday there will be a lunch stand set up in the vehicle display area.

This is one show you really do not want to miss.

    This is a GREAT show! If anyone has a chance of showing up, I highly recommend it. Its about a four hour drive for me but I’ve been going for the last four years and it’s well worth it.

    It is indeed a really great weekend, and we’re even supposed to have good (i.e., dry) weather!
