For the transverse engined cars, you are looking for what was called a 
4-motion powertrain.  Viscous coupled all wheel drive.
These are like finding hen's teeth.
Same deal in longitudinal engined vehicles was called synchro.
Common in vans.

Or just get a VW Iltis.

It gets around pretty well offroad.

It would take some measuring, but I bet a spare Iltis powertrain would 
fit into a Fox or Quantum
