Such a time capsule this 1960 600 is. In the early 50’s DAF starts production of its first cars following on from its substantive lorry production. In 1958 DAF presented the DAF 600 at the Dutch Rai car show in Amsterdam fitted with its by now famous Variomatic automatic transmission. Production starts in erst in 1959 with our very charming 600 rolling off the production line not long afterwards in 1960.

A little bit under Antwerp, in Lier to be precise, this grey 600 was delivered to its first new owner. The car enjoys a good and easy life there. In 2015 the 600 is repatriated to its original country of birth, the Netherlands. Again this DAF leads a comparatively easy life leaving us a very trim little car. At some stage it was seamlessly professionally resprayed with as effect the car has managed to retain its original character. This is not an over restored car that is more pristine than when it left the factory way back when but a car that appears to have been untouched in the 62 (!) years it has been driving around Belgium and Holland.

The quality of the bodywork is very good with nicely thinly applied paintwork, excellent alignment and doors that open and close as if they were brand new. We don’t often see that within this class of car. The brightwork, window seals, lighting and diddy wheels all present in very tidy condition. There are no-to-lists we could discover.

The interior impresses as being even more original than the outside. We suspect strongly that the upholstery is original, although we can not confirm this for definite looking at through the paperwork. The rest of simple array of instrumentation all looks original and tidy. Many Dutch will be transported back to a popular 60’s TV series featuring a DAF.

Mechanically this DAF is on point and drives like an angel. Whilst technologically not particularly complicated, it is none the less reassuring when everything works as intended as is the case with this sympathetic peoples car. Driving the 600 is very pleasing, whether it is gently motoring about or finding if the Variomatic is as fast in reverse as it is forwards.

The DAF is already a popular classic and we are sure this Dutch car is bound to enjoy increased appreciation in time to come.
