This August Fiat Chrysler and the City of Toledo will host the first-ever Toledo Jeep Fest, a one-day festival of all things Jeep intended mark the iconic brand’s 75th anniversary. If you’re familiar with Jeep fanatics, it won’t surprise you to know the response to the event has been overwhelming, with more than 800 Jeeps signing up for the parade of Jeeps that will take place during the August 13th event.
Every model year of Jeep Wrangler is accounted for within those 800 registrations, The Toledo Blade reports, save for the 1956 and 1957 model years. Event organizers are still pulling for an owner of either of those model years to register for the parade, which costs $15, before the event rolls around next month. Registration for the parade was originally supposed to close on July 15, but it’s since been extended until the end of the month.
The Blade reports some rare Jeep examples will be in attendance at the parade, including the three 1941 Jeep prototypes from Ford, Bantam and Willys-Overland MB. Significant Jeep models from Fiat Chrysler’s own collection will also be in attendance, along with the recent Wrangler 75th Salute concept vehicle.
