Daf 66
Late in 1972, Volvo took a major stake in Daf which enabled production to be stepped up.  Daf built 82,500 cars in 1971 and by 1973 this was almost 99,000.  By January 1974, Volvo possessed 75 per cent of the shares in Daf with important consequences for the company's policy.  The Daf 33 ceased production, the Daf 44 became Daf 46, and then the Daf 66.  This was the last true Daf.  The model was subsequently to become the Volvo 66.  The Volvo was very similar to the Daf model except for a De Dion rear axle and another 2 bhp from the Renault engine.
