Lot 56: DAF 66 A Marathon coupé

Classics, Charterhouse (21 July 2013)

This rare and charming coupé has been family owned from new. Originally purchased by the first owner, a Mr Binns of Southbourne, Bournemouth, from Four Square Garage Ltd, Eastbury Park, Bournemouth in 1974. The original order form states that the DAF cost £1,590.44 less £650.00 for Mr Binns trade in, a 1970 DAF saloon. Mr Binns retained the car until 1994, when he unfortunately passed away and his sister took possession of the car. It was Mr Binns wish for the DAF to be put on view at Christchurch Motor Museum, this duly happened, and it would remain there and subsequently move to their new venue in Ringwood until the museum closed its doors to the public for the last time. On closure the Marathon was removed from the museum and has subsequently been recommissioned and MOT'd for the first time in 19 years. Accompanying the car is an extensive history file containing the original order form, service book, sales brochures, past MOTs and extensive service receipts. This wonderfully original example of the rare and stylish 1970s coupé, which is a little different from the usual, would be welcomed at any classic car event and a worthy edition to any classic car collection. V5, MOT to June 2014, no current tax
