I recall seeing some drawings in a German modelling magazine many years ago for an Infantry Fire Support Vehicle based on the Marder IFV that was armed with a 57mm auto-loading cannon, 7.62NATO machinegun in a turret that was very low profile. 

Other ideas for the Marder:

Turret from the M42 Duster to create a low-tech air defense vehicle. 
Armored logisitcs vehicle by removing the sides of the troop compartment and making a cargo bed.
Bradley IFV turret instead of the regular turret to make an updated IFV with integral ATGM capability.

That was the "Begleitpanzer 57" (escort tank 57). It was also to be equipped with ATGMs.
 Apparently a private venture, they found no customers. I think it's interesting that the concept was (kinda) revived with the Russian BMPT.

What's the elevation of the stock ATGM mount?  I'm thinking of the crude way of simply replacing the MILAN launcher with a MANPADS.

Yes indeed, that was the one.  I recall someone building a model of the thing and was hoping to find images of it on-line but so far no luck.
