Cool Old Press Photos: ’57 Dodge Sierra Spectator Wagon

We can honestly say that we have never, ever, seen a 1957 Dodge Sierra wagon and with a total production run totaling 32,000 cars spread over five different variants in 1957 we guess it isn’t a wonder.

We’d remember it if we happened to see one of these beauties as we think it’s is one of the most simple and beautiful shapes of the era. We really dig the small fins that kick up on the rear quarter panels. This is just a flat gorgeous car.

A neat factoid about these cars is that the spare tire is actually located up in the wheel well and was accessed by removing a specially built removable fender skirt behind the rear wheel.

Most of these would have probably been powered by a 260hp, 325ci V8 or a weenie 138hp L-Head six-cylinder equipped with a wee little Stromberg one-barrel carb. How cool would one of those be!
