Default Murray vs. Briggs 2-Window/Slant Window Fordor Sedans 160-C

Besides looking at the Body Tag to ID a 1931 Murray or Briggs 2-Window/Slant Window Fordor Sedan, providing the Body Tag is there or not...Just what are the tell-tale signs of telling the difference in makes?

Thanks.

Steve, I do not know if this is a Briggs vs Murray thing, or just somebody's alteration, but I noticed on my Briggs 160-A and my friends 160-B that the lower body bead ended on the rear door. On another 160-B the bead tapered onto the body and into the wheel well bead. I am curious to hear from others on this.
