1976 DAF 46

In its last year in production, the DAF 46 is once again unchanged, though it has to be noted that the panel van is no longer offered. It is the very last automobile to bear the DAF name, as the 66 (basically the same car fitted with a four-cylinder engine of Renault origins) is now produced under the Volvo brand.
