Default 35 & 36 waterfall dashes

Are 35 and 36 waterfall dashes different?
Are they interchangeable?

Are the dashes themselves the same?
Thanks
Lindsay

Depending on which models of those two years you are talking about....the bare dashes (for say the closed cars) would be the same but waterfalls would be different for '35 vs. '36. I have three standard model '35's that did not get a waterfall as they came off the assembly line (tudor sedan, fordor sedan and 5w coupe). I could put pictures up of '35 and '36 closed car waterfalls if you need to see the difference or you could look in the EFV8C/A 1935-36 Ford Book.

'35-'36 phaetons and roadsters have no 'waterfalls'; only cars with roll-up windows have them.

i saw a late '36 dash today....i think....had a raised area around the crank hole.....figured it was late as pictured in the '35-'36 book, which shows the late dash as having a chrome ring around that hole and 2 "narrow stainless strips on either side of the center ash receptacle hole".....so now waterfall on that dash....Mike

Lindsay, Here is a comparison of the 35 and 36 waterfall. It also shows the difference between closed car waterfalls and Cabriolet, Woodie & Conv. Sedan waterfalls.

Hope this helps

Okay, thanks. Now I see the difference. Being that I have 36 5 window I will need one with the crank hole.
Thanks for the replies.

A question on this topic......I've seen the waterfalls painted between the ribs and chromed (or polished stainless?). How did they come from the factory?

I guess that would mean there are 4 different types.

The original waterfalls were always painted with just the raised ribs being chrome..
As time went bye, many people removed the paint, exposing the chrome..

No, just three... '35 -'36 and the open car variation..
Of course the painted portion varied depending on the variations in dash paint colors...

Wouldn't there be four ?
1. You have 1935 NO crank hole.
2. You have 1935 with crank hole.
3. you have 1936 NO crank hole.
4. You have 1936 with crank hole.

Aren't the cabriolet waterfalls a little deeper too, besides not having a crank hole?
