This is an edited email I received from Patrick:
Since having a serious accident (I was on foot … on a zebra crossing ) I can still drive but not a car with manual transmission! So, I would like to have a 2CV EQUIPPED with AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION (if possible on the steering column, I think it will be better than a T bar on the floor?) I always wanted to have a 2CV since I was young (as I am French). Can anybody tell me if this project is possible, and what would be an estimate of the cost?

Patrick I have read in a few articles that there is an centrifical clutch pack that can be installed that would be as good as an auto , … but where are all the experts Viking would know… but he is away at a rally , lucky B…gger cheers Peter

Yep, I am sure that Viking will be able to tell us more.
I found a few links that might get you thinking:
Intro from wikipedia
Looks like it should be able to be fitted to a 602 engine as well:

Well thats what I get for opening my mouth , a quick scan of the articles in the links by John indicate that the centrifical clutch is only good for 1st and 2nd gear…..sorry to get your hopes up , But I was thinking that the centrifical clutch coupled with a hand clutch or even a hand clutch might be the way to go …..or you could add a little vac pump or air compressor with a small accumulator tank and change with a button using air , as third and forth changes can be quick …. so install a trafficlutch for start up 1 st and second , wow that might even improve the perfromace 😀 then use the air to change to third and forth ….that could be a fun project…… if there is a will there is a way ….. how bad do you want a 2 CV1 August 2011 at 2:44 pm #6172CVikingParticipant
