Thanks all. A lot of great examples of V-8 Fords on Film.

Here is a another good one.

1937 Ford Station Wagon

At the beginning of the Marx Brothers classic A Day at the Races (1937), Chico is at the train station trying to get people to come to sanitarium he works for. He is using a beautiful 1937 Ford Station Wagon for hauling the customers.
Some good scenes with this Ford Woody.

How about the Ford or Mercury pickup (ongoing debate as to model and year) in Sanford & Son.

In the Three Stooges short, Socka Bye Baby (1942), the Stooges steal a 1936 Ford Station Wagon and disguise it as a tent. The 1936 Ford "Tent" is chased by two motorcycle cops.

.

1937 Ford Phaeton

The lovely Constance Moore plays W.C. Fields' daughter, Vicki, in the 1939 W.C. Fields comedy classic You Can't Cheat an Honest Man (1939). Vicki can be seen driving around in a beautiful 1937 Ford Phaeton. Warning: a cringe worthy moment in this one. Not to worry, the damage appears very slight.

1938 Ford Police Car

In the forgettable horror picture The Corpse Vanishes (1942), a 1938 Ford Fordor (?) Police Car present at a roadblock near the scene of the crime. Only the hood and part of the front door is visible. Don't know what body style for sure.

There is a 36 Convertible Sedan in the movie 'Paper Moon' with Ryan and Tatum O'Neal.

The movie is available on Netflix.
