What is the oldest DAF truck still in operation?


Recommended Posts

DAF Trucks Press Release  /  August 20, 2018

DAF Trucks celebrates its 90th anniversary this year. The company initially focused on the construction of lightweight semi-trailers and commenced truck production in 1949. Ever since, DAF vehicles have earned a reputation for their class leading fuel efficiency and driver comfort, as well as for their outstanding reliability and durability.

Regularly, DAF receives images from operators and drivers around the world, proudly showing trucks that left the production line many decades ago, and are still in daily use. This has triggered DAF Trucks’ interest – what is the oldest DAF truck still in operation, and where is it?

The search focuses on typical DAF vehicles from past decades that continue to run day-to-day.

Irishman John Tarrent has already shared his classic DAF 2100 from 1984, still working hard today: “She has 34 years of work done, never let us down and she always comes back to base, whether it’s night or day.”

DAF is looking for images and stories from its trucks from the early nineties, the eighties, the seventies or even earlier that are still in operation. Photos or video can be posted on the DAF Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/daftrucksnv/.
