DAF FA 1500

Wednesday 27 October 2010
Was that a Renault Midlum or not? It turns out to be a DAF LF, just like a Renault Trafic turns out to be an Opel Vivaro. It is not unusual that manufacturers, who are offering the same products use the same components now and then. Louis Renault’s first car had an engine of De Dion. Many components have been exchanged throughout the years. Especially bodyworks and engines are hot items, with cost-saving as the main reason. The so-called “club-of-four” cabin is a good example. It was a small lorry cabin, developed in co-operation by Volvo, Magirus, DAF and Saviem in 1974 and used by Renault until 1988. Let us have a look on everything exchanged or made in co-operation.
Having so few informations about this model of DAF I would appreciate anything that you can share.
