The B-160 series replaced the A-160 series. The styling was revised around the front end with a new mesh grill and stacked dual headlights. The standard engine was the carryover 154-hp BD-264 6-cylinder. New options were the 155-hp V-266 and 193-hp V-304 V8s. The B-160 series was made up of the B-160 (16000 lb GVW) and B-162 (18000 lb GVW) straight trucks, the B-165 tractor (with a 29000 lb GCW), the B-164 model with a heavy-duty rear axle (19000 lb GVW, 30000 lb GCW), the B-163 school bus chassis, and the B-166 fire engine chassis.
In 1961 International developed a new truck diesel from one of its farm tractor engines. The D-301 was an enlargement of the D-282 that had been in use in tractors and construction equipment since 1958. The 112-hp D-301 was optional in the B-160, B-162, and B-164 and some were also installed in school buses. The D-301 was not recommended for tractor-trailer duty.
