THAT one is a 1935--note difference in hood side panels (1934 has 2 rows of 2 each, 1935 has 3 in a single row), fenders (full skirted on 1935), different headlight lenses (1935 are more convex), runningboard trim (1935 extends onto front fender).

George is correct.........on my phone I didn’t look close enough. Not sure on the number of 34 survivors.......identical car except the trim. A few dash difference as well.

The ad is right about Pierce production for 1935 as 875 units (8-cyl or 12-cyl, 3 wheelbases--139, 144, 147).  That was about half of the 1934 production total of 1,740.  It got worse:  1936 production was about 843 (plus any passenger car-based park buses) and 1937 was about 193.  These numbers are from the now-deceased Bernie Weis, Esteemed Keeper of Numbers for PAS.
