The basic C-30 was introduced in mid-1933, replacing the A-3. The C-30 was powered by the new International HD-3 213ci 79-hp L-head 6-cylinder engine, which replaced the old Lycoming 224 ci six. The C-30 also had an International-built 4-speed transmission and spiral-bevel rear axle, the 1933-34 had mechanical brakes, the 1935 and newer had Bendix 4-wheel hydraulic brakes. The CS-30, brought out in 1936, was the same basic truck except for its 2-speed rear axle. In mid-1937 the dramatically restyled DS-30 replaced the CS-30.
