Paintwork checked with electronic paintwork micrometer and ranges from just a thin coating of 60-100 micro’s confirming that this vehicle has likely never been repainted in 42 years! 

Supply & ownership… This vehicle was supplied brand new by Hawards DAF of Colchester, Essex to the first owner on Thursday 1st August 1974 (first day of the then new M-plate), and sold to the current registered keeper around seventeen months later for £725 on Wednesday 10th March 1976 and remained their pride & joy ever since (DAF owners club members). 
The vehicle may now be nearly 42 years old but has the mileage and 
appearance of a three year old car! 

Recent years… Since 1995 the vehicle has been garaged and carefully 
stored by its last owners, being MOT’d just a few times since. In 2016 
it was re-commissioned, MOT’d and purchased outside the auction market, 
so this vehicle has remained off the radar and never been through the auction 
or retail classic market for sale. Vehicle supplied with… • Two sets of 
DAF keys (ignition & door locks) • Model 33 Owners’ manual & DAF
 Service booklet • 
Original bill of sale from 10/03/1976 when the vehicle changed 
hands for £725 • HPI clearance certificate and NMR mileage clearance •

a factory option for cold days! • Service invoices (20 of 23 
being Volvo) from 
12/11/1982 through to 29/07/1994 • Plus 1st service stamp by
 Hawards of Colchester at 314 miles! • Plus 2nd service stamp by

Every year in the UK there are 150,000 cases of Sepsis, resulting in a staggering 44,000 deaths – more than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined.

The UK Sepsis Trust (UKST) was established as a charity in 2012 with the objective of saving 12,500 lives every year. We are committed to changing the way the NHS deals with Sepsis, to increasing public awareness and supporting those affected by Sepsis. Every penny you donate is valuable in helping us achieve our goals, together we can help to mend Sepsis.
