As per ASA, V45W refers to being a 6g74 gen 2 regardless of Being DOHC or SOHC.

I will have to find the thread on fb, but there was a chassis that a gen 2 had a 6g72 and leaf spring rear and drums.

You're exactly right. My V45W is a SOHC, i even meant to change that. Thanks.
 I'd love find where the leaf sprung and carby Gen 2's fit

So it was  V33W is the 6g72 with leaf spring and drum brakes, chassis for Gen 2, Aussies call them the Poverty package in other words the base model where as our base model Gen 2s are still a coil spring/3 link rear suspension. Some of the 4D56T trucks also came with leafs and drum brakes in their base models as well.


Surprisingly there is even a Gen 1 that had disc brakes somewhere in the world.
