Inovator Robert Paxton McCulloch in 1937 introduced his original centrifugal supercharger, a giant pancake-looking device that mounted directly to the intake manifold of Ford flat head engines.

His first reciprocating ball design was developed as an air pump in 1943 for the U.S. Navy to circulate air inside America’s submarines during World War II and later in nuclear submarines.

McCulloch never dropped the concept of an inexpensive, bolt-on aftermarket supercharger for the general public. Extensive research was carried out by Paxton Engineering and in the early ’50s became known as Paxton Products. The first of these compressors was the VS57/VR57 belt-driven blow-through design that ultimately became an option for Kaiser Manhattans, Studebaker Golden Hawks, Ford Thunderbirds, Fairlanes and Edsels.
