8C 2300 Chassis

I'm enjoying this pic in a classic British magazine, and the way the engine fits in the frame like an Allison hanging in the nose of a P51 Mustang.

So, help me out - I'm seeing a fuel tank in the back, and oil tanks over the axle, correct? What is the tank between the frame rails next to the transmission?

Thanks!

Dry sump oil tank. Some cars had this mounted up front between the dumb irons.

Battery box/tool box over rear axle.

That makes a lot more sense - oil close to the engine. That's a pretty big tool box then.
