Are you sure he said "37" (or perhaps was misquoted)? Delta has taken full advantage of the 757/767 common type rating - regularly swapping pilots between the two.
It's been a several years now, but I was once seated next to an 'in transit' Delta pilot who flew 757s and 767s. He mentioned that he often didn't know if he was going to be flying a 57 or a 67 until after he arrived at the airport.
