Hello, would someone please look in a body interchange manual to see if a 1957 Super windshield is compatabile with 1957 Special Wagon? I don't think it is, but thanks, Jeff

Thanks for the replies guys. Think about this: Could you imagine the tooling costs to change the same car, for the same year, between models? All that trouble to make them longer/wider between Special, Super, Roadmaster, Century? This goes for any older car. They could have given each just different trim/moulding, options, etc, and still kept the beauty of 50's cars intact??

Think about this: They were able to produce some of the most memorable and artistic functional mobile utility art ever conceived of then or now and did it with a good healthy profit to boot utilizing competent, well trained, Union craftsman and talent paid a living wage, producing a quality long lasting product all right here in the U.S.A. . Today, you get Play Dough Machine produced look-a-like bean pod structures in your choice of Silver, Black or Gray with big wheels or not. Back then the general U. S. public's perception of component quality and freedom of diversity would not of stood for this like today, that is being on the receiving end of some mutated version of a sterilized, homogenized "Volks" ( Peoples) car.
