:D Read to day that Ford DID build 'a' 4 wheel drive model 'A'. It was a prototype that never never went into production. Only one was built. It had two rear axles that was full time 4 wheel drive. Have pictures will post later. Shelby, Sacramento

ive thought it would be fun. I dont think it would be too awful hard to do. Get some light weight solid 4x4 axles ( older jeep wrangler? 80's nissan/mitsubishi truck axles) make some mounts, acquire a divorced transfer case out of something and weld brackets into an AA frame and ti can be done for sure. Might get lucky and find 4:11 axles so its got some good grunt especially in 4 low.

Will need to calculate and make some special driveshafts and steering linkages but it can be done.
