Not many PJ owners fully realize just how many accessories were available to them in 1935. The green/black accessories folder D-3164 listed 36 accessories plus a chemical/appearance line. The dealer accessory price list D-3181 offers 39 options besides the chemicals. If you are a careful reader then you will find still other options tucked away in Group 1 in your parts book.

Accessories/Options on the Rare Side
When you compare the price of the Philco radio, as a percentage of the car cost in 1935 you’ll understand why very few were installed. On the other hand, we’ll all agree that there were some great bargains, like welled front fenders.

While not on the accessories list, this option could be had for only $39.50…that’s two fenders, covers, locks and another spare tire and wheel!

And if you have a chance to pick up Lauggage rack, do so, but try to get the bumper brackets also, as they are different and have the necessary mounting holes. The rack was a $16.50 option!

Another rare accessory are the factory-installed through-the-fender dual trumpet horns found only on early models. While literature depicted the accessory horns as external (under headlamp mounting), in reality, PJs up to serials 2591129 and 1083808* were equipped with the through-the-fender style horns when the dual horn option was selected. (The * used here is the way the PJ Series parts list identifies the standard line). The horn motors were larger and, with the long tubes leading to the trumpets, the sound is excellent! You’ll see these horns on the sedan featured in the March 9, 1935 Collier’s magazine ad.

There were three ways to tell time in 1935. Plymouth offered a square dial, 30 hour, pull-wind mirror clock; a round dial, 8-day windup mirror clock and the round face electric glove box clock. All are very difficult to find. Prices ranged from $3.95 to $11.75.
