35 vrs. 36 ford truck HELP!!!

Does the 35 ford pickup cab differ in any way from a 36. I ask because my truck is titled as a 36 but I have told its a35. I didnt think there was a difference

back in the day, Ford like Chevrolet, used up all the parts of one year vehicle. When those parts were gone, they then started a new year vehicle.

Example, I have a 1946 Chevrolet truck in the shop. It was manufactured in March of 1947. Even though it looks like a 46, it's a 47. Chevrolet changed the body style significantly in 1947 but all the trucks produced before April of 1947 kept the older body style. Thus the early 47 was called art deco and after March 1947 were called Advance Design.

There are some minor differences that only an real old timer, or some one that has done a lot of tedious research and studying could tell. The quickest and easiest way to ID a 35 cab is where the wind shield post joins the cab. Take a picture of this area on both sides and post and I will tell you if it is a 35 or 36. The doors will interchange in the opening, but the inside configuration is slightly different in handle location, window felt installation and the way the door panel is installed. The grille is different on both trucks,(the 36 is deeper than the 35 by about 2 inches) and the 35 grill must be married up to the 35 hood panels and the same with the 36; however, they can be be swapped as a unit on the cabs. Other words, the grill shell and hood from a 35 can be installed on the 36 cab. I can not remember if you have to use the 35 fenders as well in this swap. The head light cans are slightly different, but again, you have to look hard to tell the difference. After market vendors list one number for 35, 36 and 37.
