Hi, there were 4 color 'styles' for 57 Dodges: "single color", "Standard 2-tone" (roof, only), "2-tone combination" (roof & fins) & "Deluxe 2-tone" (roof, fins & lower). There were, technically, only 17 color-combinations, in each 2-tone "style", but I'm sure that special color-combos were 'specially' orderable, as the paint was applied by 'hand' (and, without respirators(!!) in the paint 'booth'. btw, the paint codes for tourquoise & white are "M" & "L", as shown on your car's Paint & Trim plate, on the firewall.
