The International 1210 replaced the 1200D. The styling was unchanged except for a new mesh grille, like that of the Scout, and revised shape and placement of side marker lights. There were no significant mechanical changes. In 1972 the light-duty series was given a new grille made of five thin horizontal bars split by a vertical center divider and extending around and beyond the headlights.
