Ferguson used the Dunlop Maxaret system.
I used to own one of the Ford Zephyr MkIVs they modified. They originally
did 28 for the Home Office for trials which resulted in Police Forces having
to buy a certain percentage of 4 WD vehicles. The resultant motor was
interesting and they did another 8 after the first batch. I sold mine for a
pittance to the then Treasurer of the Ford Zephyr Owners Club in the
Midlands. Ferguson used Zodiacs but they were badged as a Zephyr. This
vehicle model was the first 'computer designed car' for Ford (over here) and
Ford sent a service leaflet to their garages listing a total of 128
modifications around 6 months after being on the road. They were a real pig
to drive quickly but the Ferguson modifications made it into a wholly
I've still got the service manual / booklet listing the Ferguson
modifications that were done to the vehicle and they even moved the engine
and transmission sideways 1.5inches to obtain a better balance. The
Ferguson 4WD system was the fore runner of most modern day non mechanical
4WD systems, using a silicon fluid between rotors. All of Audis early 4WD
was based on Ferguson work.
