but I'm curious if the Argentine 2CV suspension would still let a farmer drive across a plowed field with a cargo of eggs.
Only derivatives made by the defunct IES featured that different suspension. All the models made by CitroŽn itself, and their IES equivalents made shortly after the sale of CitroŽn Argentina assets around '79, featured the very same original 2CV suspension. But anyway, don't expect the ones with the Argentina-only IES frame to fare as well driving cross-country.
