Aaahh Yes, the DAF 66.
Made in Holland, back in the days when the Dutch plaid brilliantly entertaining football. (In 1972 they were runners up at the world cup. In my mind the only time the Dutch really deserved to win, but lost the title to the Germans).
DAF 66 had Renault engines, and was only available with automatic (CVT) transmission; the pretty clever “Variomatic” gearbox and belt drive. Because of that, DAF was the choice for disabled persons in many countries on the continent.
It was renamed “Volvo 66” when Volvo bought DAF small-cars-division. After that almost all Swedes really hated it for not being a “proper Volvo”.
Think it was'nt really a bad car, though, but cool? No.
