yes a couple ways to do it
you need 2 switches
one just for the headlights
other for taillights/marker lights

the other is a reducer keyed to turn on with cart
and hooked up to all lights except your headlights
headlights would be to an on/off switch from reducer

BTW .. always the identify the cart brand, year and voltage

That's the way I did it. Separate switches.

Why not just get an older style auto headlight switch.

Or have a lever arm for your lights/horn/indicators. If your headlights have only one beam (i.e. no low beam/high beam) then you can connect all your lights to the high beam switch and just your side lights to the low beam switch (your indicators and horn would be connected as usual).

This way when you switch your lights on with the arm in the low beam position, only the side lights/tail lights come on but when you switch to the high beam position, sidelights/tail lights and headlights are on.

That's the way I have mine hooked up and here's a picture of my switch in place. My switch also has a "flash headlights" position (as you pull the lever towards you) and I have that hooked up to "all lights". I could have done the headlights only but it was easier to just flash everything (same hookup as the high beam position).

A '57 is SUPPOSED to have a chromed pull type headlight switch and a FLOOR dimmer. Not sure that in '57 they were too concerned with lighting up the dirt UNDER the car though,,,
