    Default Headlight buckets for my 1957 starchief

    Can anyone tell me if the sub-buckets for a 55, 56, 57, Chevy are the same as the 57 Pontiac. They look simiar to the Pontiac on the internet, but I cannot be certain of the size, fit, and function. They seem to be easily obtainable for Chevys.

    Hello Rod, good question, they do look about the same size and shape and it would seem logical they must be the same. But they are not, even the rubber gaskets are different (correct Pontiac gaskets available at CPR). The headlamp buckets are 1957 Pontiac only, but both sides are the same. Good luck with yours,

    Tod, I am referring to the sub-bucket. This is the part that is between the bucket and the headlamp. There is no gasket between the sub-bucket and the bucket, or between the sub-bucket and the headlamp. Thanks.

    Rod, I think you are referring to "RING", Group 2.726. I don't know about interchangeability with Chevy but for Pontiac, 1955 "Second Type", 1956, and 1957 are the same. See www.PontiacSafari.com/MPC/Pages/page_0133-173_Group02.pdf and go to Group 2.726, "RING".
