If you mean PYV 82L (Gladys) I had it for a while and then sold it to a couple from Leicestershire. They put it back on the road and drove it for quite a while, as well as getting a second Daf (called Daphne). They had a Facebook page about both cars, but haven't updated it since 2017 when they'd bought a scrap 44 to use for parts for some work needed on Gladys.
Was the daf55 reg odr315j cos that I rescued in 1994 from yard in Peterborough but it was sold to chap in lincs
In a similar way, I rescued it from a scrapyard in Lincoln in 2008. Someone made me aware that there was one of those "nice DAFs" parked on the edge of the yard. It had suffered a bash in the nearside rear wing (the owner had reversed at a fair speed into s wall)
Anyway, I bought it from the yard, and our good friend Paul DAF Daffer then took it on to get all running again and to tidy the body up.
It then went to a new owner but since then, no idea where it is.
i remember the trip too the jaguar heritage museum as i came over the brow off a hill i nearly stuffed the poor old 55 in the rear end, luckily i managed to swerve and ended up stopping 3 cars ahead of the 55. the poor couple in the 343 black beauty looked mortified..
