1957 Chevrolet Truck models had a number of modest, but noticeable styling revisions for the new model year. A total of 351,739 Chevy trucks were produced in 1957.
The most obvious was the new grille design. It had an oval loop in the center that was attached to a massive grille. The grille was surrounded by four short bars on the top and the bottom. The new grille was available painted or chromed.
Sculpted into the top of 1957 Chevrolet truck hood was two small wind-splits. Chrome bombsight ornaments could be attached at an extra cost that really dressed up the wind-splits and the hood. See image below for the wind-splits and optional bombsights attached to a hood. The 1957 Hood ornament or molding was slightly larger with a Chevy logo in the center. A chrome V was placed below the Chevy logo on 1957 Chevrolet trucks equipped with V-8 engines.
