Was there a model called the DAF Daffodil?

My brother in law and I were discussing the DAF drive system and I am certain there was a model called the DAF Daffodil. He laughed and said there was no such model name. Do you know?

There definitely was. It was the first DAF 2-cylinder engine, open belt CVT transmission, built at the factory at Born in Holland that later became a Volvo factory, then a Mercedes-Benz/Mitsubishi factory, and is now a Mitsubishi plant. More about DAFs at: www.dafownersclub.co.uk/
