Dutch Pancakes: 1969 DAF 55

DAF was a company founded in 1928 under the name Commanditaire Vennootschap Hub van Doorne’s Machinefabriek. The 55 is a small economy car built in the Netherlands (sometimes mistakenly called Holland, which is a region in the Kingdom of the Netherlands) during the 1960s by Dutch-speaking Dutch folk (not Danish-speaking Danes – they build Lego cars in Denmark and bake those delicious Danish butter cookies sold in large tins). Find this 1969 DAF 55 offered for $4,950 in Escondido, CA via faceyblam marketplace.

Seller’s Description
Very Unique Dutch car made more obscure and weird by having a full custom built roll cage installed along with race seat, ATL fuel cell and AFFF fire suppression system. Ready for Vintage or Historic Racing or just enjoy a 1-of-a-kind daily driver and show up your friends at the next street takeover. Heck, take it to Gambler 500 or 24 Hours of Lemons!

We’ve had this car for over 16 years and I’ve only ever seen 1 other belt drive variomatic car in person and it was a Volvo 66 which licensed the technology from Daf. These were capable little rally cars back in their day because the rear drive acts as a lsd limited slip differential.

Runs and drives. Comes with all the stock interior and stock fuel tank and you can cut out the cage easily if you don’t want a caged driver. Otherwise car is completely stock. Comes with a spare engine for rebuild (Renault engines).

Please come see it in person before making an offer. All cash-in-hand offers with a trailer in tow will be considered.
