It was a derivative of the 100LS engine family, I believe.  That whole engine
line was later sold to AMC.

<<did Audi and/or VW share any engine designs with Chrysler? >>

The original (they weren't actually very original, but ...) Omni and Horizon
hatchbacks used a 1.7L version of the VW 827 engine family; aka the
Golf/Rabbit/Jetta engine family of that time period.  I think that chrysler
bought the manual gearboxes from VW as well.

The 924 was also built by Audi at its Neckarsulm factory.
