Distinguishing Features and Equipment
On the used market, the P35 is one of the best values partly due to the newly designed instrument panel. Instruments were placed in a new ‘T' layout, and the old ‘piano key' electrical switches were replaced with new ‘toggle' type switches.
The P-model saw a higher landing gear extension speed, up from 140 to 165 MPH which made the P-model a large step forward.
