The '57 front end will fit but you will have to make acouple of adjustments
first. One, the '58-9 hood hinges mount in a slightly different location
than the 55-7s do. Two, the radiator core support mounts that are riveted
to the frame will have to be moved back towards the cab an inch or so. As
far as I know that's all the modifications that have to be made. Some one
correct me if I'm wrong.
