DAF 55

2-door 4-seater saloon/coupé/estate.

Water-cooled Renault engine transplant for 44's structure, plus torsion bar/MacPherson strut front end and disc brakes. Now better than 80mph all-out, still with Variomatic. Only collectible type was 'Marathon' coupé, which rallied with some class success, but still no match for a Mini-Cooper.
