Some special knowledge about it :
LT stands for Lasten-Transporter which means Load-Transporter so you can tell it was, back in the day, designed for the working people who had to carry/haul heavy loads. The 45 right after the LT indicates the gross capacity of the vehicle which is in this case, thanks to the dual wheel setup and heavier axle in rear and beefed up suspension configuration all around , 4.5 tons or about 9500 lbs. The Transmission/Motor configuration was, back in the day, built in cooperation with VOLVO and the bottom end (Block) is the same on Diesel and Gas Engines on these types. In Germany and all around Europe, because of that clever engineering, it is known and appreciated as an almost undestroyable and very reliable Engine.
