I read somewhere that there was a company in the Netherlands I think that converted a few 1969 Sportroofs to AWD. I do not remember the performance times but the traction was a big improvement and apparently very innovated for it's time.
I've got the engine and tranny back in the car and now going to make a roller out of it as soon as I can find some wheels to fit the front. It has a 72mm (Mazda 3) centric hub and the old wheels will not fit. On the exhaust I'm still thinking on a turbo. If it gets it then the exhaust will run around to the passenger side and follow the normal route. My plan was to run the car with the engine stock and work out the bugs then add the turbo. I will say I do like the rear or mid mount turbo set up. So much heat is lost when it's away from the engine and thus lower IAT's. Once I can get the car on the lift and do some head scratching I'll figure out where things will go. BTW this car will sit at normal ride height and not look anything close to a body mounted to a four wheel drive chassis. Other than the car I started with I have only spent about 2k on what I've done so far. The wheels will be the most expensive items on this build. Let the fun continue LOL.

It wasn't a Dutch company who build those cars, it was a British one. There is also a 69 Ferguson convertible out there somewhere. About 3 years ago, someone came on the Dutch Mustang & Ford Forum to aquire more info about his car. Few months later, he probably sold it. Some forum members saw it listed on a local website. He hasn't been back since, so for now, this car is M.I.A.
Unfortunately it was missing quite some parts from the 4x4 setup.
