The Model V35A with the Continental IO-520B 285 hp featured the new “Speed-Sweep” windshield with increased area. The leading edge of the windshield was mounted six inches farther forward than previous Bonanzas and possessed 12 degrees more slope angle.

All Model 35 Bonanzas manufactured in 1968 and after were reclassified with the prefix “V” to separate those airplanes from the Model 33 “Debonair,” which was renamed “Bonanza.”
