Two  good clues from the side of the aircraft are the nose, the point
of the 757's nose being considerably lower than that of the 76, and
the 75 has four quite noticeable flap track fairings under each wing.

The two fuselages are different also, of course, the 75 being quite a
bit slimmer than the 76.
