Does anyone recognise what this could be off?

BMW's also have that , but this isn't BMW. The angled ports are puzzling.
The 2CV engine - very tough. An oil cooler and an oilway up the conrods for small end/piston lubrication and cooling. Surely one of few vehicles which is going to be run at full throttle for any length of time.
There was no synchromesh on first gear. You became good at double declutching from second to first, a once much known skill I suspect.
A trouble was that the chassis came with a corrosion guarantee - it was guaranteed to corrode.
You are right about chassis corrosion. Hence my five in succession, four bought new. The fifth one that I had built for me had a stainless steel chassis but unfortunately blew up the engine rather spectacularly. Oh well, back to Vincents.
