family members used to have one a few decades back.

this is the only mass-production car made in the Netherlands.it was famous for it's Variomatic (=CVT) trasnmissin.DAF was the first brand which had these transmissions.The inventor(H.van Doorne) was the owner of DAF.

The brand was basically killed because it had an "old people's car" image.no young people wanted to be seen in it.too bad, cos they were surprisingly good.

need more info ?, just ask !

edit: if you ever get to Eindhoven in the South of the Netherlands be sure to visit the DAF Museum.It is very nice.it has a section of DAF Trucks including very nice ones from the 50's and even Paris-Dakar winners !!it also includes a section for the automobiles.Furthermore there is a section with a very good explanation of the CVT/Variomatic transmission.i knew how a CVT worked before i knew how a combustion engine worked.I probably was about 7 years old :d i have some vey nice posters on my room, from the museum.

edit #2:
a good/nice website about the history of DAF and their vehicles:

My office is residing now approximately 100 meters from the exact location where these cars used to leave the production line Although there have been a lot of changes, the general layout of the factory hasn't really changed.

And if you are in the area this is really worth visiting! Not only just because it is run by retired and active employees with a LOT of passion for the cars and trucks!

The DAF 600 is a small family car that was DAF's first production passenger car: it was first presented at the Amsterdam Motor Show in February 1958 and was in production by 1959, although the firm had published the first details of the car at the end of 1957. It was available until 1963.

The 600 was the first production car after the 1920s Clyno to have a continuously variable transmission (CVT) system - the innovative DAF Variomatic. The DAF Variomatic employs engine speed, via centrifugal weights, to shift the transmission and is enhanced by an engine manifold vacuum. It was the only car ever produced which went faster by the simple expedient of gently and gradually releasing the accelerator once top speed had been reached. This increased manifold vacuum which helped the variable pulleys shift to an even higher ratio so even though the engine RPM stays the same, the transmission increases the car's speed, in the case of the DAF 600, from 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) to nearly 70 mph (110 km/h) given enough time and level road.

The Variomatic also permitted increased engine braking by operating a switch on the dashboard which reversed the action of the vacuum on the pulley's diaphragm, seeking a lower ratio with increased manifold vacuum.
