Main identifying points: Look for the classic Boeing cockpit windows with 4 "eyebrow windows above the main windows - two on each side, Two traditional wing mounted engines, oval shape engine covers (distinct to the 737-400 & higher series), no winglets, a kinked leading edge on the tail and the tail cone shown in the picture. This was not a popular selling plane but airlines often added them to their fleets if they had other versions of the 737 already flying. It's known for it's fat stubby appearance.
