per 57classicchevy.com:   "The 1957 Chevrolet received major restyling and some important engineering upgrades, including a big boost in horsepower. The new styling was the finest of the 1955-57 "Classic Chevy's". Chevy advertised it's '57 as "Sweet, Smooth and Sassy! Chevy goes one better for '57 with a daring new departure in design (looks longer and lower, and it is!), exclusive new Turboglide automatic transmission with triple turbines, a new V-8 and a bumper crop of new ideas including fuel injection!" said one ad. "You'll love Chevrolet's new light-touch driving! You'll never put hand and foot to a car so quick, smooth and easy to control - a light touch does it, Chevy's solid on the road - and that goes for the way it's put together, too!" said another.

The 1957 Chevrolet was smaller than the competition so the styling was deliberately fashioned to make it look as large as possible and it had the boldest and biggest look among low priced cars. The massive new bumper and grille is just one example. Front fenders were stretched across the top of the head lights and the unique and distinct rear fins, that all 1957 Chevy fans love, helped to make the car look much larger and lower."
