All-Wheel-Drive 1970 Ford Mustang Convertible

This 1970 Ford Mustang might not look like much but it carries a remarkable secret "factory" all-wheel-drive, making it likely the only one in existence. Ford examined the concept of AWD and had a British company named “Ferguson Research” fit its crude all-wheel-drive system into the mustang. The AWD Mustangs also featured an ABS braking system, long before the feature was common. In 2017 a 1970 Mustang FF (“Ferguson Formula”) 4×4 was listed for sale in the Netherlands.
No word on what happened to the vehicle.Though performance and handling were improved, the modifications were too expensive and Ford decided not to pursue AWD. It's believed that three Mustangs were fitted with AWD, the other two coupes.
