The VR57


VR57 Patent

VR57 Cutaway

Exclusively used by Ford in 1957, and prime catalyst of the ban on factory sponsored racing by the AMA in June 1957 the legendary VR57 was a remarkable supercharger.  After Ford relinquished itís exclusive use in 1957, Paxton revised it and remarketed it as the VR58, but failed to promote it and instead concentrated on the Direct Oil VS59 superchargers. If only they had taken the VR57 further.
