I have a 57 chevy. Can the clock be powered directly to the fuse box? How about the radio? The radio is an original slide bar.

The radio and clock are fused from the fuse block. Orange wire to clock and yellow wire to radio. Link to fuse block.

Forgive me for such a simple question, where is the fuse panel located?

What year model? Some tri-5's do not have a fuse panel. If the car came without any optional accessories, such as radio, heater, spot light, ect., it did not have a fuse panel.
As mentioned, it's under the dash on the drivers side, but the exact location varies with model. Link to 55/56 fuse panel. ............ Link to 57 fuse panel.

On the 57 it is located above the kick panel on the drivers side. If you have lights, turn signals, heater etc. there must be a fuse panel or inline fuses somewhere.

A fuse panel was not a standaed feature. All the lights were protected by the headlight switch if there were no options installed. Here is the factory wiring diagram from the assembly manual that shows NO fuse panel. Heater was optional on all tri-5's. Link to factory wiring diagram for a 55. The 56 was about the same as 55. The headlight switch was changed on the 57 model and it did have 2 inline fuses on the basic model for some of the lights. Link: See 9 amp and 3 amp inline fuse near bottom left of sheet.

I agree. I am into the 57 and haven't looked into the 55 and 56. My first 57 came with deluxe heater, radio and clock and also had a fuse block. Thanks for clarifying .
