There were three questions that had to do with rear view mirrors on your 1955-1956-1957 Chevy.

Question 1.  In 1955, 1956 and 1957 Chevrolet offered, as an accessory, inside and outside rear view mirrors.

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

Question 2.  In 1955-1956 and 1957 the interior rear view mirror was available as an accessory with either clear or tinted anti-glare glass?

This was a True or False or “they were available as both” question and the correct answer was false.  The accessory mirror was offered in tinted anti-glare glass.

Question 3.  In what year(s), if any, was the exterior rear view mirror offered in both a standard mirror or a remote adjustable mirror?  Choose all that apply.

You could choose 1955, 1956 or 1957 for this one.  The most popular answer to this question was 1957.  But in reality the correct answer is 1955-1956.

72 people answered our Trivia questions this time but only 2 got all the answers correct.  Ivars Z. and Fabian A.  Ivars, who has answered most of our Trivia questions correctly, won just a few weeks ago and is not eligible this time.  Which leaves Fabian A. the sole winner this week.  Congratulations, Fabian.  Your $20.00 gift card is on the way.   Thanks to everyone for playing.  Better luck next time.

There were two questions that had to do with seats in your 1955-1956-1957 Chevy cars and trucks.

Question 1.  In 1955, 1956 and 1957 Chevrolet offered, as an accessory, seat covers that slipped over the upholstery. This accessory was offered 2 (two) ways. As covers that were put over the back rest as well as the seat cushion and as a cover that only went on the seat cushion. Both passenger cars and the trucks had this option available.

This was a True or False question and the correct answer was false.  The accessory seat covers were not offered on the passenger cars in 1957; only the trucks.

Question 2. Vehicles that were built for the Government were usually sold with only 1(one) bucket seat on the driver side.  Which other cars came equipped with only a driver side bucket seat?  Choose all that apply.

The correct answer was Sedan Delivery.

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.
