Dodge celebrated its 25th anniversary with new styling that had the head lamps integral with the front fenders and a two-piece, V-type windshield. The gear shift lever was moved from the floor to the steering column. Dodge's "Safety Light" speedometer had a lighted bead that would glow different colors depending on car speed. In 1939


Chrysler had Many First options,

496CHEVY3100 The earliest incarnation of the modern oil filter came about in 1923, when Ernest Sweetland introduced his invention known as the Purolator, a combination of the words Pure Oil Later. Incorporated into the lubricating system after the oil pump and before the oil flows into the engine bearings, the original Purolator featured an upright series of seven twill weave cloth-covered, perforated plates encased in a heavy-duty cast container. It also had a sight feed glass on one side, enabling the owner to see the oil flow and change the filter when flow slowed to a trickle.

James A. Abeles saw enough potential in the Purolator to convert a New York City garage into a company called Motor Improvements Inc., developed primarily to manufacture Purolator filters. The Maxwell Chalmers Company also saw promise in this new product, installing a Purolator on a Maxwell automobile which was test-driven on a round-trip from Detroit to the West Coast in 1924. The longer oil drain intervals, cleaner oil and reduced engine wear offered by the Purolator ensured endorsement by the automotive industry, and they soon became standard on many popular automobiles of the day, including Studebaker, Pierce Arrow, Hupmobile, Peerless, Cadillac, Oakland, Gardner, Moon, Jordan, Buick and Dodge

This article list several car seem to offer it around same year
But ,CHRYSLER web site says a 1936 Dodge was the First auto to offer the replaceable oil filter, and it Was a Puralator.??.

496CHEVY3100 1934: FRAM opens for business in the USA during a time when filters were the exception rather than the rule. Today, every car on the road has an oil filter to help protect its engine.

1934: FRAM produced the first oil filter with an easily replaceable cartridge.

1951: FRAM introduces pleated paper air filters. The first vehicle manufacturer to adapt their air-intake system to incorporate this new invention was Studebaker, which FRAM supplied on an original equipment

They were known as Ford Brewster's. Brewster & Co. bought 135 Ford chassis's during the depression to more or less to fill a need for the continuous Rich car owner to set aside their more "shove it in the face I'm still rich and your not" chauffeur driven luxury cars and have something more plebeian to ride in. That and the fact that RR's weren't selling as hot as they were before the depression. Only one was fitted with a standard 1934 Ford grill and that was the very first one built for Edsel Ford. Fourteen others had 1935 grills and the rest had the heart shaped Brewster grill.

Go for it.
