    Not to be picky, but If I recall, all the vans and utes were Belmonts.
    The 'luxury' Kingswood spec was generally reserved for the sedans and wagons.
    Even a special order on the factory for Kingswood spec van/ute was pretty rare.
    Of course, you could raid the wreckers yards and acquire some Kingswood badges and fit them to the lowly Belmont.

    If you wanted "luxury" you went for a Premier or a Brougham.

    I think the utes came in Belmont or Kingswood versions. My HG ute was definitely a Belmont but I had an HT paddock ute in NZ and I think it was a Kingswood.

    You don't need a booster on drum brakes. If you fit one it will make the grabbing and pulling worse.

    Yes...the vast majority of utes and panel vans were Belmonts. In my youth I had an HK Belmont panel van on which I performed a major transplant. I stripped it out and installed (from an HK Monaro) a Chev 327 (with roller rockers), 4 speed Saginaw gearbox, disc brakes, front suspension, full Monaro (front) interior. It was somewhat of a beast....and very loud...aah, the days of one's youth! A few years after I discovered smaller, lighter cars... so then followed a GTR XU-1, a Lancia Beta and the only other Renault I've owned...a yellow 15TS....
