Thanks for you replies on the 57 wiring issue

To answer Steve - This wiring kit I'm using on my 57 3100 is a original kit, 
which would seem to work fine.  Steve, you are correct - I'm running a 1972 
350 with an alternator.  I am just curious to get feedback on whether this 
system (where the headlight switch has one tiny fuse) will protect the truck 
when I 
add things like a nice stereo hidden behing the glovebox etc.

According to "Dave 57 3100" who replied, one small short in his taillight 
buld shorted his whole system. My Dad the engineer thinks I'm nuts if I don't 
in a fuse box.  However, the local 47-59 Chevy truck shop thinks I'm OK as 
long as I keep my wires under the hood far away from the headers.  

57 3100   
oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
