The Volvo 66 was a relabelled DAF 66, a revised car originally styled by Michelotti. The compact car that was made after Volvo Cars bought DAF in 1975, before production of the Volvo 300 series began. It was known for its continuously variable transmission, the Variomatic. The Volvo version of the car was slightly restyled and given larger bumpers compared with those of the original DAF model; this was in-keeping with Volvo's philosophy of emphasising safety, this made the car more expensive though.The other major features in which the Volvo 66 differed from the DAF 66 are:

* Different seats with headrests
* A safety steering wheel
* Doors with steel side impact bars
* A declutching servo which enabled the driver to change gear with the choke engaged (In the older DAF models this wasn't possible, because the increased idle caused the centrifugal clutch to engage).
* A 'park' mode in the CVT, which locked the driveline.

Engines

* B110E Renault C-series OHV 1108 cc straight-4 Auto PS|47|1
* B130 Renault C-series OHV 1289 cc straight-4 Auto PS|57|1
