Seen much worse...If you have any specific questions, ask them in the body forum.

I am not positive but the 55 - 57 chevy basic body sub structure are similar. I think the inner and outer rocker panel repair panels may be the same. I would not recommend repairing this with fiberglass. This is a high stress structural area of the car. Just my thoughts.
