Ford had two different flathead V8s in the late thirties. How could you tell which one it had without lifting the hood. We are not talking emblems, or anything like that. Standing out in front of the car, just bend over and look from twenty feet away you could tell by the front suspension. What was different?

Man, I could go on a guessing spree here, but I'll wait to see if someone actually knows the answer.....

OK, I lied,

One of them had a longer spring shackle.

If it had a longer shackle, I wouldn't know, but I don't think it does.

Nightrider, nope Ford didn't have independent until 1949 in any car.

What is your point on the Cad?

Tubular front axle on the V8 60 cars and an I-Beam on the V8 85's!!! (Then of course there are the grille emblems - especially remembered by me on the '37s)

At least I improve googling skills!

As for Cad, as you say at first time, it's DeVille (FWD)

You are the winna! Those tube axles are beautiful too! My brother had a Channeled Model A when we were kids with a beautifully dropped "37 Tube axle".

It's your floor Dave.
