Running Changes

There is nothing as consistent as change and your PJ certainly had its share of changes during the model year. Some were results of engineering improvements during the year, while other changes were the result of a new vendor appointment or perhaps a need to exhaust previous inventories. None are adequately explained and this sometimes makes it very difficult for the restorer. You’ll look at another PJ exactly like yours for reference in your restoration and something will be different. Whose restoration is correct? In many cases, both are because for some unknown reason the part was changed during the model year.

Your 1935 Series Parts List will help you get better acquainted with your PJ if you’ll take a little time to examine some of the areas where you may have concerns. For example, if you were puzzled about your steering column support because you have a u-bolt and I have a chrome bracket, a review of your parts list would show that PJs built after serial 2508901 had the chrome bracket. So your car must be earlier and mine must be later. And, both are correct.

I have listed many of the running changes so that you might get a better idea of how many changes there were. They are listed in serial number sequence for your convenience.

Serial 2397601 through 2641320 are deluxe cars, Detroit built
Serial 1039101 through 1111645 are std. Cars, Detroit built
