To my knowledge they didn't have a concern about smog in '57 so there was no smog control equipment available for these cars.

Smog only came into the picture during the late 70's and by the 80's it was really ramping up. 57 was wide open!!!

According to most environmentalist's your Chevrolet makes smog, but no, they were not equipped with any smog related pieces like a catalytic converter.

I acquired a 57 Chevy from California back in 1975 and it had some kind of thermostatic hot water regulating devise mounted in the upper radiator hose secured by two hose clamps. The devise I believe had two vacuum ports on it. I was told by the previous owner that it was part of some sort of emissions system California had in place at that time. I can't confirm or deny that fact so there for to me it is just hear say. If you are curious about this issue I would suggest you research California's smog laws that they may have in effect back in 1957.

No, The first smog pump that I saw was on a new 1968 Chevelle. I had a 67 Chevelle and It did not come with one.
Hope this helps.
