Ron, I had never heard of the 378 CI V-6 in trucks up here in the States until I bought the service and parts books for my 504 V-8 from Cummins. Was it due to tariff regulations or what, the reason many of the Aussie new and repowers were small engines like this and the 53 series Detroits??? 

 brocky the  378 ci  v6 was  from the vim-vine series           your 504 was val- vale series

good question import tariffs may have had something to do with it??
when i started in the early 60,s a R190 was considered a BIG truck
and king of the road on interstate then thru the efforts n foresight of laurie oneal [peterbilt]
and ed cameron [kw] we got the paccar products and western trans started importing b model macks
and these trucks changed trucking here forever unfortunately back in 64 a new 351 pete with a nh250 was the same cost as 2 
average homes in sydney!!!!!  about ! 1/2 million bucks today  something the small operator could not afford
so trucks like 180 ihc     760 dodge    f8000 ford and the pommie d series ford with v8-185 sold well
when i started with cummins we had a repower section with 2 mechanics and 1 one welder / fabricator and  detriot had the same
and with these size trucks which america used for 6-8  ton local deliveries only the smaller cummins n gm engines would fit
i guess the truck that  typified that era in transport would be the ab 184 ihc   c-160 cummins 5 speed fuller 2 speed eaton
bench seat  manual steering  no heater no a/c single speed wipers no washers hyd brakes no engine brake
most went on interstate work  pullin 36-38 ft bogie trailer   pullin 16-18 ton of freight
madness by u.s standards but they did the job and put a lot of operators into kws in the end

It was a great truck, I meant to type in my previous message.  I ain't a truck so much...
Our T 950 had two hood scoops. Custom Cab, which was chrome windshield trim and chrome door handle wells, if I recall.
I can't post a picture.

Were there many trucks with V6200s in Aus., Ron? Were they a good engine? I've never seen one-I think there was an Inter RF195 that got repowered with one in the late '60s over here, but long gone now.

hamish  the only v8-265   v6 -200,s i ever incountered were v8,s in army  larks[army duck]
and 2 v6-200,s that we repowered 2 new  r-205 ihc.s for a drilling co af ryan n co

ihc lidcome   had  a problem with both trucks after the repower , drivers complaining of a strong smell of gear oil when hot
they had  5x3 trans and both were pulled n inspected   extra breathers remote mount were fitted but still the problem persisted
till a mechanic on a test run noticed  fumes coming from under the horn button      , the right exhaust was a bit close to the steering box!!!!!!!
the larks   here all 265 v8,s n luckly the army had a warehouse of parts as we at cummins could get bugger all
the highest hp of these engines was a marine version     vta370    and in marine or industrial application they didnt give much trouble
but then niether did the 903 unlike there history in the nth hemispere???
