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.​
SPECIAL EVENT: We will be re-building a complete Borg-Warner T-90 3-spd Transmission onsite. After completion, the T-90 will be raffled off during the banquet on Saturday night.

In addition, 2 tickets will be drawn and the winners can rebuild their (owner supplied T-90) at the same time with expert guidance and a Willys Reunion supplied Master rebuild kit. We do ask that you attend Friday to clean and prep your transmission or have it done and ready before you arrive.

Doing some prep work for the show this weekend, we’re going to practice and rebuild a couple for ourselves. Don’t forget to buy a raffle ticket and do your own with us live at the reunion or win a rebuilt t90 outright

Here is a quick update about events happening at the Spring Willys Reunion, taking place at the Bertram Inn, Aurora, Ohio May 17-18, 2019.

Guest speaker Jeff Nelson visited the site and took measurements for the installation of his “When Wagoneers Roamed the Earth” display. This 40 plus panel display will be loaded into the ballroom Thursday evening and Jeff will be available all-day Friday and Saturday on site for questions and to share some of the stories he has after lifetime love affair with full size Jeeps.

Joe Deyoung has been tearing apart and putting together a T-90 transmission to make sure the transmission clinic build goes smooth.
If you have not purchased a ticket to rebuild your transmission alongside Joe on Saturday, you can find them for $15 here T90 Rebuild Raffle

If you have taken the top off your transmission and it looks like this:

Then you really need to buy a raffle ticket. We will be using master kits provided by Novak and will be providing some gears to our two rebuild winners as needed. A local transmission shop will provide a hot tank cleaning of the transmission parts on Friday. Here is a photo of a torn down t90 and the Novak master kit.

If you don’t have a transmission to build, you can also buy a ticket to win a completely rebuilt T90. Tickets for that can be found here: Raffle

For the picnic Friday night, this year we are doing something a little different. The Saturday lunch wagon is a local BBQ master who will be smoking pork Friday at midnight. He will also be cooking the Friday night picnic fare on his smoker.


After the picnic, Barry Thomas will do a very short presentation in the ballroom. He managed to locate an original Jeep marketing film, “Revolution in Pleasantville,” while on a trip to Franc. The film shows a Jeep, Monroe Lift and Newgren Lift Demonstrations that took place in 1949. This film was shown to audiences on May 13, 1949. We will get to see it again just over 50 years later!

Registrations are rolling in and things are really coming together for the show. We have lots of support from vendors big and small.
