Win a restored DAF 33 for just £2.50

| 25 Apr 2013

A 1970 DAF 33 that has been brought back to life by members of the Norwich Classic Vehicle Club could be yours for the price of a £2.50 raffle ticket.

The Dutch-built classic is to be offered in aid of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, with the raffle being held at the club’s fun day on 2 June.

Around 20 of the cars are said to remain on UK roads and this example’s been treated to a three-month restoration that included a complete respray and a freshly fitted interior.

NCVC member Lewis Turner drove a near 700-mile round trip to collect the DAF, now affectionately known as Isabelle, and most of the parts needed to complete the work were donated by businesses and organisations including Essex DAFs – meaning the job cost just £50.

Meanwhile, the workspace and tools came courtesy of Norwich-based Purely Classics.

Turner said: “It’s great to get all this publicity and we hope to raise as much money as possible for the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit.”

The 33 will come complete with a year’s membership to the DAF Owners’ Club.

Tickets can bought by calling Turner on 07901 590806.
