And here is the final result. The 44 prototype coupé still exists and resides in the Daf museum in Eindhoven - Holland, along with many other interesting cars and one-offs. The body was built in the Michelotti Carrozzeria in Turin, in 1965.
As you can see on the interior photograph, it is only a mock-up : there are no pedals !
This was a nice car, but far too costly to be put in production, and the performances would have been leisurely, with the home-produced flat-twin. Daf had to wait for some years to get the more powerful Renault engine. Then Michelotti developped another coupé, simply by chopping the 55 saloon roof.
