1964 DAF 31 Daffodil

The 1964 DAF range is highly reduced as the underpowered 600 and the 750, a simplified version of the Daffodil, both disappear. Only the Daffodil remains as the modified DAF 31 - after the simple front end of the beginnings, then the busy grille of the DAF 30, Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti has been hired to update the car with modified front and rear ends, along with a new, more angular roofline.
