Default Pix of '55-'57 Ford Gassers - the "other" Tri-Fives

Here is a place for everyone to post their favorite '55-57 Ford Gasser pictures. I'm going to kick this off with some historic photos, some of which I know belong to other HAMBers here.

I hope they won't mind my posting pix of their cars. After all, they are kick ass, or they wouldn't be here!

I am working on a '55/56 Fairlane gasser myself, but I'll wait to post pictures of it until it is a little closer to being finished.

In the mean time - HERE THEY ARE . . .

No kidding? Even with a car as big as a '57 Ford, I don't think that would having an engine that big would make it C Gas, either. I was guessing (hoping for) 352 FE or something like that.

Everyone has an opinion, I think the guy ruined the yellow 57 Ford. Those cars look better lowered.
