Actually 80-early 81 Eagles had permanent 4wd, or AWD, midway through 81 SelectDrive was an option and in 82 it was standard equipment

It was still a 4WD system. It used a direct gear connection in the transfer case, rather than the system of clutches used by AWD systems. The part-time 4WD used a shift fork set-up to engage and disengage 4WD.

Oh, sure, the modern Subies, but the Subies that were around back then were basically crap. The Eagle really was the first workable modern wagon that could really go off-road, not just on bad roads.
