Take your car to a reputable speed shop and let them tell you. Not many people around that want to add a blower to a 1953 Fairlane on these forums, I suspect.

Wallace a belt driven blower is called a supercharger, you would most likely need to change your intake manifold and carb setup, you couldn't run it through your 3-2's.

You would be better of looking at the centrifugal superchargers which are much like a belt driven turbo. No messing around with manifolds and exhausts etc.

They are usually oriented to efi though, there will be roots type blowers & associated gear that will go straight on.
