Delicious, a little Dutch glory in this section! A real Daf 33 that has survived turbulent periods and still looks beautiful.
With turbulent periods we do not mean things that this specific Daf 33 had to endure, but the time in which Dafjes like this were reduced to scrap without any problems. Of course that often happened when the cake was finished, but in particular the famous reverse races with comments by André van Duin at the end of the 1970s sent a lot of Dafjes to the eternal rust fields. In his younger years, the appreciation for the Daf was undoubtedly less widely supported than now.
Good for the value of the remaining copies, shall we say. This 33 from 1971 will be worth roughly in Euros what it had to cost new in 1971 in guilders. Techzle reader Ferdinand Lanson filmed it three times, thank you! In such a state, the 33 undoubtedly still wins quite a few hearts and he succeeded at least at the beginning of this year. That’s when the current owner/owner bought the Daf. This piece of Noord-Brabant industry is now in the hands of the seventh owner. ‘Truttenshaker’ or not, we really like it!
