New K-Series Shop Manual 1957 - RBK-421
This OEM 1957 Dodge Truck K Series Workshop Manual is a reproduction of the initial service guide released by the Dodge Division.
The 1957 Dodge truck range stood out for its remarkable design, largely thanks to Virgil Exner. You might wonder, "Who is Virgil Exner?" He was a pivotal figure in automotive design, contributing to Chrysler's innovative "Forward Look" in the 1950s. By the time 1957 rolled around, Dodge trucks had adopted this eye-catching design, already beloved by car enthusiasts. But Dodge's appeal wasn't just skin deep. Beneath the stylish exterior lay formidable power, epitomized by the Hemi V-8 engine, earning Dodge trucks the moniker "Power Giant" for their robust performance.
