DAF Museum-U.S.A

Inlägg av thebear54 » 14 feb 2012 12:48

I am very proud to be the Director of the only DAF Museum outside Europe.
During the past 40 years I had been collecting DAF memorabilia from many original American DAF dealers, various trips to the Factory (last trip was 1970) and merchandise sent by friends in Holland.
My family owned many DAF cars here in the early to mid 1960's so I had a lot of stuff. ;)
In 2010 it was decided to build a large Garage (after I ran out of room in my old workshop) to house all the DAF material so the DAF MUSEUM & RESEARCH CENTER-USA was started.

This was the old workshop where everything (cars, parts and collectibles) was stored for a long time.

The new building (18 meters long x 9 meters deep x 4 meters high) was finished in August 2010...

The new building houses 14 DAF cars and a Library on the second floor. The old workshop remains as the restoration garage where all the welding,bodywork and painting is finished.

Even after over a full year I am still organizing all the DAF collectibles and products. Slowly it is all coming together.

I would like to announce three (3) new additions to the DAF Museum-USA.

The first DAF is a unique piece of DAF history. It was found after being stored inside for almost 40 years and only has 18,000 original miles.
Bild
This is an all original 1960 DAF 600 Type 2

I recently purchased a 1978 Volvo 66 Estate for the Museum from England. The car is in remarkable condition for it's age and will only require very minor repairs and restoration work
Bild

Also two weeks ago a long time club member donated a very special (and rare for the USA) DAF...
Bild
It is a 1966 DAF Daffodil Type 32 sedan.
