I'm not sure how this compares to your '57, but on my '47 I bought a bunch of different Greys and found the Krylon Fusion Matte Deep Gray 2914 to be a good match to the original color. Here is a picture with the original on the passenger side and the Krylon on the driver side. I sprayed all the greys on a piece of metal and held it next to the interior panel and took a picture. I found that the lighting that I was using caused the new paint to look different than the original when pictured. I then did a test spray on the rear door jamb and in natural light determined this to be the match.
