Yes you are seeing things correctly. The engines were offset around 1" - 1.5" to the right. This allowed for steering gear clearance and additional footwell space for the driver.
Everytime I see a C3 with a hole cut in the hood and a air cleaner sticking through I have to laugh. It just looks wrong poking through off center. Now a 6-71 roots blower sticking through on the other hand...:thumbsup:
