There have been no new PTV installations on 757s other than the initial 48 ex-Song domestic aircraft and the ex-TWA/AA international aircraft. No official plans have been announced to expand this number or bring them to any PMNW aircraft such as the 753s.
All domestic 763s have had PTVs for several years. There are 7 international 763s with PTVs, which are aircraft equipped for 12 hour flights (although now they often are rotated on other routes as well due to a reduction of routes requiring the type). The remainder of the international fleet is scheduled for conversion starting later this year.

Quoting LY777 (Reply 7): What about their 763ERs? Do they all have winglets?
I saw one of DL 763ER Wingleted last wednesday at VCE, and its winglets were just IMPRESSIVE!
Before, the initial instillation were on the 76Ts (extended hour 767s with PTVs) but now there are quite a few ERs outside of those with winglets. To answer your question, no, not all 763s have winglets but that's the plan save for the Gulf Air birds.
And yes, they are impressive as they should be at 11 feet tall!
