Canadian cars came with slight trim variations, this is one of them for 57. 57 Plodge came with some Canada only bits also. they put the manufacturer on the backs since it was no where.

Canadian Chrysler had better documentation and thought stuff out more I believe because they had a chance to fix errors as it was handed down. Their manuals are much better than US stuff. Good luck finding one, those seem like unobatanium…

Chrysler Canada put the name on the rear of the 1957 Plymouth (P30, P31) and 1957 Dodge (D64, D65) as the public would not be able to tell them apart from the rear. Yes, the rear deck lid lift had stylized sails on the Plymouth while Dodge had a warrior's head, but they were not very big. Thus the nice nameplates -

Plymouth, part number 1696 702
Dodge, part number 1757 180

Neither number appears in the U.S. 1957 parts catalogue - only the Canadian.

Yes, I actually have the Canadian parts catalogues (they were published annually) from 1949 to 1968. Plus some scattered years before WW II and in the 1970's.
