Still plugging along on the beach car...but have a couple of questions that should common with the 4CV.
On the engine compartment tins...the ones that are vertical that help direct air through the radiator. The ones that came out of this car were some sort of cardboard...would that have been correct or were they originally metal? These look like they may have been cut out by hand...but they are also old and pretty tattered.
Was the Gear lever shaft chrome plated?
