“Introducing the American Eagle. Totally new, totally exciting and totally right for the 1980s!” Roy Lunn was the Technical Director of Engineering for Jeep after engineering the Ford GT40, GT Mark II and GT Mark IV that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966–69. Working with FF Developments and GKN Ltd. in his native England he created the revolutionary four-wheel-drive AMC Eagle. Based on the AMC Concord sedans and wagons, the 1980 Eagle was first mass-produced 4wd automobile. Later versions could be switched to two-wheel-drive, and were the official vehicle of the National Ski Patrol. They were also used by the California Highway Patrol and rural letter carriers due to their excellent traction. This immaculate 1987 Eagle Limited was one of just 5,203 Eagles built that year, and on March 10, 1987 AMC was sold to Chrysler, who then built the final 2,305 Eagles in ’88, the last AMC vehicles. We just photographed this Eagle for our upcoming book, The Complete Book of AMC Cars.
