This cabin had a low roof and accommodated two beds at the rear and also could tilt. The engine below was Europe’s first 11.5 litre intercooler diesel engine that gave an output of 320 hp.
The front face this new version called DAF 2800 had four headlights and a black plastic grille. In the same series were also models such as the DAF 3300 and DAF 3600. All these models were used for inter-state, inter-continental logistics as we well as for large haulage.
