57 roadmaster vs special

Recommended Posts

No, the dash pads are not interchangeable between all series of '57 Buicks. 40-60 Series have Upper Center, and Upper, left and right. 50-70 Series have Upper Center, and Upper, left and right.

Two different sets of numbers.

Correcting 'cause I screwed up, sorry! :confused:

Martino, I'm not sure what you mean by moustache grille. The upper chrome grille surround is

about 3 inches wider on Super/Roadmasters versus Special/Centurys, but the center ornament

(that says 1957) fits all models.

The grilles themselves don't interchange, either. Super/RM grilles have 104 verticle bars,

while Special/Centurys have 100.

This should answer your question,

Right Bob,

I was thinking of the center aluminum fascia that fits all. Bad error, and thanks for the correction.

I noticed it last night when the old topic was revisited, and just got time now to revise.
