Big things with little cars

I rediscovered this Citroen 2CV while at my parents' house over Christmas. It used to be one of my favorites because of the working suspension, that, due to its bounciness, somewhat accurately resembled the torsion bar suspension in the real 2CVs. However, since this car is missing that little 2-cylinder engine, most of the weight is at the back, resulting in the opposite stance of that real 2CV.

This version is by Edocar, a Dutch diecast company (1986-2007) that never made its own castings, but used Maistos, YatMings, and a few others under license.

It's definitely in need of some TLC, and is on my list to restore, probably in that classic red/black two-tone combo, with some Matchbox chrome dish wheels.
