A unique main feature of the 1962 DAF Daffodil is its revolutionary CVT (constant variable transmission) combined with IRS (independent rear suspension) and a form of positraction that delivers power to both rear wheels. The British were the first to attempt a constant variable transmission in 1923, but DAF refined it to the point it provided the blueprint for 21 st Century CVT transmissions to follow. The analogy is Gatling gun technology that evolved into the M61 Vulcan. After pioneering an infinite ratio automatic transmission in 1955 the company spent four more years in research and development before debuting the prototype DAF 600 passenger car February 7, 1958 at the Amsterdam Auto Show. Four-thousand DAF 600s were pre-ordered and the tiny 4-seater went on the market in 1959.

Introduced in 1961 the DAF Daffodil with its larger more efficient 750 cubic-centimeter engine was assembled at the Eindhoven, plant in the province of North Brabant, Netherlands. The Daffodil is the highest trim level available in a model that starts with the base level DAF 750. All models came standard with the company’s groundbreaking transmission design. With the same passionate devotion DAF developed its first automobile it debuted the very first of its kind, the DAF Variomatic fully-automatic infinite-ratio transmission (CVT). A unique design feature now shared with the modern day Bugatti Veyron the Variomatic system employs two transmissions. One transmission per rear wheel. Should one transmission fail, the other transmission is sufficient to keep the car in motion. The DAF is finished in original equipment BASF Glasurit a brand of paint famous for its amazing resilience, and gloss.
