    Hello,

    In the 1959 drag racing battles at dragstrips all over So Cal, Pete McCarroll was making records at one strip. But at other competitions, Les Ritchey with a similar Paxton/McCullough Supercharged 1957 Ranchero was also pushing the record books. Les Ritchey and the Performance Associate Shop were the ones to watch during this 1959 era in the Super Stock Class. They gave the 348/335 hp Impalas a run for the money.

    My brother and I have always thought that by adding the McCullogh/Paxton supercharger would make any street driven hot rod plenty of power for just about anything. The thought of another street hot rod was going to have a McCullogh supercharger, whine and all, for power. (Despite the belt drive system.) Not many could run a 471 or 671 on the successfully on the street at the time and for a supercharged motor, the Paxton/McCullogh was the system to use. (We were totally impressed with the exploits of Junior Thompson and his McCullogh/Paxton supercharged B/Gas Studebaker sedan.


    But, it started with the Ford factory and Studebaker factories including a centrifugal supercharger to slightly, stock motors to be able to enter into the factory stock car class at the local drags. Supercharger from the factory assembly lines? Who would have thought?

    When we were sitting in a drive-in restaurant parking lot somewhere gabbing with other teens, anytime we heard the “whine” of a Paxton/McCullogh supercharger was always impressive. The distinct sound made our necks whip around immediately. It was definitely added power to most hot rod motors that could be used well on the daily driving chores of school and work.

    Did the two Paxton/McCullough Supercharged Rancheros ever meet? Still researching through the files for that answer.
