This week our questions were about the 1957 Chevy.

Question 1.  In 1975 the People’s Almanac reported that there were a group of GM stylists, led by Ardell Malowick, who left Chevrolet in 1957 and, from 1958 thru 1967, went on to produce copies of the 1957 Chevy 2-door hardtop at a small auto assembly plant outside Jacksonville, Illinois.

This was a True or False question and the correct answer was True.

Question 2.  The 1957 Chevy’s produced from 1958 thru 1967 were rumored to have been created using a European coachwork technique of pounding the body shape out over wooden molds formed from fiber-glass replicas of the real thing. They did this so they could eliminate some of the original imperfections in the 1957 body and the fact that they could not afford the stamping molds needed for the body panels.

This was a True or False question and the correct answer was True.

Question 3.  It is rumored that Ardell Malowick, who was the leader of the group who were said to have been producing copies of the 1957 Chevy, closed down shop in 1967 because of rising costs and the fact that GM had become wise to their operations and were preparing legal action.

This was a True or False question and the correct answer was True.

Question 4.  The original GM corporate plan was to have an all new car for 1957, but production problems caused Harley Earle to order a quick redesign on the 1955-56 shell when it became clear that the new car could not be ready in time.

This was a True or False question and the correct answer was True.

Question 5.  As the redesign of the 55-56 shell was so late in the game the 1957 Chevy was a rush job which explains it’s many design and body flaws like tail light, head light and quarter panel alignment issues.

This was a True or False question and the correct answer was True.

We had 5 questions this time that had to do with the radio installation on Tri-Fives.

Question 1.  Even though there were a couple different radios in 1955-1956 & 1957 the installation for each of them was basically the same.

This was a True or False question and the correct answer was True.

Question 2.  The radio installation kit contained 3 resistors. One to be attached to the coil, one for the voltage regulator and one for the generator.

This was a True or False question and the correct answer was False. The radio installation kit actually contained capacitors, not resistors. 

Question 3.  Ground straps were installed between the exhaust crossover and the steering gear assembly on all cars in 1955 and between the block and firewall on 57 6-cylinders and between the valve cover bolt and the firewall on the 57 V8’s.

This was a True or False question and the correct answer was False.  The 6-cylinder applications do not have a ground strap location according to the Accessory Installation Manual. 

Question 4.  Where were the static collectors located?

The correct answer on this one was that they were installed inside the dust caps on the front hubs.

And pulling up the rear is Question 5.  What was the antenna trimmer?

The correct answer to this question was Nn adjustment on the radio that helped reception. What you did was tune in on a weak station and then adjust the trimmer to get you the loudest sound from the speaker. Thus you had the strongest signal.

The question was..
The 1955-1956-1957 Chevrolet Nomads may have been the most expensive of the Tri-Five’s but they were wildly popular, and still are to this day.

These cars were expensive to build due to their many “One-Off” features that were incorporated into the body design and not used on any of the other models. One of their most interesting features are the 9 (nine) indented ribs in the exterior roof panel.

How did the Nomad get such an interesting design element?

The answer is that originally Harley Earl had wanted the Nomad to have a stainless steel rear section that would retract or telescope (depends on which article you read) allowing for tall items to be carried in the cargo area.  Chevrolet quickly nixed the idea.  The grooves on the roof and the corresponding chrome bows on the headliner are the remnants of that design.

There were 15 correct answers.  The allowable 14 and one extra as the sole “Wild Card Winner” for number 15.  Congratulations to all the winners, your poster is on the way.

The question was..
How many 1957 Chevy cars were known to be built with 6-lug front hubs and 6-lug rear axles?

There were 3 correct answers depending on which article we found for reference.  When we did the article a couple years ago for the Danchuk Update, our research found that 10 race cars were built along with 2 test mules (so either 10 or 12).  Also, there is a great article online at Chevy Hardcore written by Bob Krider where it states that there were 6 cars built.  Of course, the cars that were built with this modification were the Black Widow’s built by SEDCO to compete in NASCAR in 1957.
