Default 57 Pontiac and 57 Chev

What bits do they share???

I know that the glass is the same...but what else do they share?

Trunklid? Hood?

Are there any fiberglass panels/bumpers etc made for the 57 Pontiacs???

I've always wondered at what point they started sharing components. I learned the hard way that '37 Chevy parts don't work on my Pontiac.

I'm thinking 50s for sure, haven't really lookd close at comparing 40s models.

If it's a Canadian Pontiac than everything interchanges but a US Pontiac has a completely different frame, steering, axle, firewall, heater, motor, trans etc. Figure only glass, trunk lid and doors interchange. My 47 Chev Torpedo shared a lot of body panels with the Pontiac
