For several decades the Variomatic was actively represented in motorsport: in Formula III racing cars in the 1960s and in international rallies and rallycross in the 1970s. In particular, the performances in the London-Sydney Marathon and the Marathon de la Route put DAF in the spotlight. In an attempt to give the image of DAF passenger cars a sporty impulse, an option package was developed for ‘the sporty DAF driver’. The Daf 55 was modified in both motor and appearance to be known as the ‘Daf 55 Marathon’, named after the rallies in which DAF made a name for itself.
Where ‘the sporty DAF driver’ was mainly interested in the increased power, the young rider public was particularly interested in the optical embellishments that the Marathon package brought. It was precisely this target group that DAF wanted to reach in order to build up a better image, so the test balloon that was the Marathon package turned out to be a golden move.
This success prompted DAF to supply modified Marathon equipment ex-works on various body styles of the 2nd type of the Daf 55 line. The successor Daf 66 could also have the Marathon trim fitted ex-factory, first as 1100 Marathon and later as 1300 Marathon.
Out of a total of only 3,517 1300 Marathon coupés produced, this one from December 1975 is one of the later copies.
The color combination is also very tasteful, the body is painted in ‘Marina blue’. A very nice contrast with the black interior. During sporty rides, black Cobra rally seats with red seat belts keep you in the right position.
The paintwork and bodywork are in good condition. The fits of the sills, fenders, doors, hood and trunk lid are neat.
This DAF originally comes from the south of France, so absolutely rust free. And registered on Dutch license plate since 2012.
