Parts list for 1957 PLX10 Metallic Blue

I'm putting a parts list together for a 1957 PLX10 build and in the process of touching up areas of exposed frame. I've been holding the frame for sometime and have a lot of 1960's PX10 components that I'm going to repurpose for this build until I can one day find the original parts.

What I don't have at the moment are the following and need to know if these were the correct parts so I can start looking:

1. Headset - I think the proper was the Stronglight P3 threaded 1x25?
2. Crank - Stronglight 49D.
3. Rear Derailleur - (Juy Simplex 61) I think this was the correct model. But, I will need a replacement for now. The Juy Simplex are too expensive and willing to use replacement part that I can use with my current wheels. (5 speed Mavics).

This is what I have for the build
1. Handlebars and Stem
2. MAFAC Dural Forge brakes, Front and rear with levers.
3. ATOM Pedals
4. Wheel are: Mavic Montlery Championnat du Monde, Normandy Lux hubs with a 5 speed. These are 70's tubulars but I will need to use these.
5. Ideal Saddle
6. Simplex Seatpost.

Below is a parts list but it doesn't give a description/model of the parts.

As far as paint, has anyone been successful in touching up the blue metallic from the late 50's? I just want to recondition the pain.

The Juy 61 derailleur would not have been available in 57.

Crankset might have been Stronglight 57 model.

Agreed, a Juy 61 would be 4 years too modern. Simplex's competition derailleur in 1957 would have been the Juy 543.

While the Stronglight 4i9D and 57 were available, the 1957 Peugeot literature shows what appears to the 45 (steel, cottered).

The literature mentions a Stronglight headset. Both the P3 and Competition were available in the very late 1950s.

That spec sheet shown is too modern, as it mentions Prestige derailleurs, which first appeared in 1962.

Yes, you both are correct. It looks like I have the wrong list. The master spec list looks like it was from a 61-62 catalog. I'll post pictures of the bike w/ Serial Number to get a better date,
