Roy Lunn has passed away at the age of 92. This is from the American Motors Hall of Fame as he is a 2015 inductee: After a brilliant career at Ford, which included overseeing development of the Mustang I prototype, GT40 race cars, and Boss 429 Mustang, Lunn joined American Motors in 1971 as  director of engineering for the Jeep division. At AMC he was responsible for development of  the Eagle line of four wheel drive cars,as well as the XJ Cherokee, first of the modern, unit body compact SUV’s. He was also involved with the 4.0L straight six, and 2.5L four cylinder engines,  both still produced by Chrysler beyond the year 2000.
