If they are all 1957 would it be safe to say they are from the same oval ?

I'm certainly not an expert on numbers, but going through this it looks like the motor is later, DEC '58? And trans looks like a '58 also.

I'm not at best at reading these, but good info to look at.

If they were all the same month and year - Yes
