There’s long been an appreciation among drag racers for the stripper look: That is, get a two-door post car and denude it of excess trim or gadgets, slap a set of blackwalls on steelies with pie plates, all in the “go, don’t show” philosophy. Indeed, this 1957 Ford Custom would have been one of the lightest Fords one could get that year (just five pounds heavier than the Thunderbird), yet it has the 190hp 272 V-8, a midrange selection in the Custom, making this car less a quarter-mile pounder than a simple, no-frills classic.
