Its not perm but it sends drive all the time to the rear prop which is then connected to a viscous coupling just before the rear diff. When there is a difference in speed between the front and rear wheels the VC locks and power is transfered to the rear wheels.

Most T4 Syncros are fitted with a rear diff lock which is switchable to aid traction off road.
