I can see the attraction of retaining the 2cv chassis, but the effort/cost taken to find/restore one (to retain the V5...) may well be less than that to use the bespoke chassis, particularly given the handling benefits of the Leighton suspension mods.
400 new, and galvanised to boot -

As for retaining the V5, it's a standard, replacement chassis so under DVLA rules the V5 can be retained if one of these is used to replace an original chassis that's rusted so badly that there's actually nothing left of it at all. Trigger's hammer and all that.
