The Story of the 1935 Ford
 

1 Attachment(s)
The Story of the 1935 Ford was written by Paul McLaughlin and was published in the 2003 issue of Collectable Automobile Magazine. A very nice 12 page article describing the different 1935 Ford models with an equally nice photo layout to compliment it.
I have found reference to other automobile articles written by Mr McLaughlin but none have any contact information.
Does anyone know the whereabouts of him?

Not sure about Paul’s whereabouts, but I’d love to read the article.

Stand by,
I have a copy i can reprint from, since it is still available from the publisher I will check to see if I can share it. If so I can send it in pdf.

Paul Mclaughlin is a rather prolific writer of books about trucks. He is a member of the American Truck Historical Society, New Mexico chapter. Best I can put down on a site like this is that he lives in or near the Albuquerque, NM region. If someone wanted to find him, it likely wouldn't be too difficult.

The 1935 models were developed by a group of designers at Murray Body working closely with Edsel Ford's approval on design. They were changing from the 1933/34 design which was based loosely on the model Y Ford that was one of Bob Gregorie's first designs. Murray was favored over Briggs due to union problems at the time.
