    [​IMG]Ive been wanting to add one of these for some time now and finally found one. Ive had my 57 since 88 and I guess Im tired of the same old same old. Thats what I love about the HAMB! Its opened my eyes to alot of different styles. Took me 3hrs and some cutting but I got it! I know guys have been adding 57 Buick grills in 57 Chevys since the 50s, but let me know what you think. Thanks, Mike.

  4. I say go for it. I like the look.
    My brother has a Buick grill and a 57 Chevy. Hopefully he will combine the 2 one day.

    This is the best grille treatment I've ever seen on one of these. Just look at it. The factory should have done this. (glad they didn't. We wouldn't have appreciated this one this much!)

    Really good choice here.
     
  14. I like it. Looks right at home there.

  19. The Buick Grille is the best ever replacement on a 57 Chevy , it's been done since probably 1957 and still today nothing looks better ! Nice job on Yours.

    Well done
    Thats a great look
    Iv seen a few ... mostly way back .. im from 1959
    The only thing that could make it better is a 57 buick around it.

    I really love this look not to much, just the right amount of change on a 57.

    Nice job on the placement bro, my opinion is this is the best sub for the orig. going. Like the orig. a lot but this is just so at home in there, looks like you scored a real nice piece to work with. Nice!! ~sololobo~

    I like it.......
     
  26. They always look good. I have a 57 Buick Grille I have had for over 30 years I took to the last swap meet and never got a look. Thought there would be a 57 Chev guy there for sure. Put it back on the shelf for a future day. Got it for my 57 I had back in 70 but never got around to installing it. Still the best looking Grille for a 57 IMHO!!
     
  27. Like 57Trucker said, one day I'll get around to doing mine. Just not ready to pull off all the stuff needed to do the work.

    I have always like the combination of 57s.....My buddy put one in his '58 Pontiac and it looked good, too!
