Default 1957 Ford Country Sedan, F code

My neighbor Frank S. brought out my FAVORITE unicorn from his stable, a documented factory supercharged 1957 Ford wagon with racing history. This car hits all my buttons.

Sometimes I would run up against a wagon equipped just like that at Avilla Drag Strip in the mid 70's when I was racing my L/SA 67 Caprice 327/275/Turbo 400 coupe. Week to week it was a toss up who would come out the winner.
