The Automotive Hall of Fame is proud to present an exhibit celebrating the accomplishments of Roy Lunn (1925-2017), the brilliant engineer who led the creation of automotive icons such as the Ford GT40 and unibody Jeep Cherokee.

During his 40-year career, Lunn designed a prolific array of vehicles including post-war sports cars, radical concept cars and trucks, iconic racing machines, four-wheel-drive SUVs and even military transports. In 2016, he was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame for his contributions to automobile engineering.

The exhibit opened on Friday, January 12 and will close on Sunday, May 13. It is housed in the lobby of the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, MI and open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. There is no charge to view the Roy Lunn exhibit. Visitors can also tour the rest of the Automotive Hall of Fame at standard admission rates.

Guests will see artifacts from Lunn’s career and a video montage featuring induction tribute clips and his acceptance speech.
