In 1932 the 1½-ton International A-3 joined the continuing AL-3. The difference between the two was that the A-3 had springs mounted above the axles in normal truck fashion while the AL-3 had them mounted below the axles in the "underslung" position. Otherwise, the trucks were the same, with a 224 ci 61-hp Lycoming L-head 6-cylinder gasoline engine, Warner 4-speed transmission, and International spiral-bevel rear axle. In 1934 the B-3, with a new International overhead-valve 6-cylinder engine, replaced the A-3.
