The 957 prefix engine was a Villiers 6E 197cc engine which was supplied between 1949 and 1953 to "unknown customer"
I have no record of it being an original fitment in a FB, but models that used the 6E engine were
Falcon 54, falcon 55,Falcon 62 Trials, Falcon 58 series I , but these engines did not have the pre-fix 957 , so were a different specification of the same 6E engine
