International B-series light and medium-duty models used the same cab as the previous A-series, but were restyled with a new bright mesh grille and vertically-stacked dual headlights. Pickups in the B-line were available with Bonus Load boxes, which were wider inside than the previous wide-body style. The big news for 1959 was the introduction of all-new V8 engines. With its modern overhead-valve V8, International finally caught up with all the other makers of light and medium-duty trucks. International was the only maker to build a small-block V8 specifically for truck duty instead of modifying a passenger car design. The B-100 series was made up of the 4200 lb GVW B-100 model and the 5000 lb B-102. Available engines included the 112-hp Black Diamond 220, the 141-hp Black Diamond 240, and the 155-hp V-266.
