The 1931 Series 355A was longer and lower than its predecessor the 353 Series. It also had a longer hood with five hood ports and matching doors in the cowl. For the first time, the floor boards were made of metal and the battery and tool compartment were under the front seat. The instrument panel was oval but the same gauge groupings remained as in the Series 353. The Series 353 featured dual horns, a single bar bumper, a radiator screen plus a new frame with divergent side rails. The suspension springs had metal coverings and the radiator was mounted lower in the frame with a condenser tank for cooling. The engine is the same 353 cubic inch L-head V8 as in the Series 353 with a 3-speed synchromesh manual transmission.
