Joe Smith didn't sell ALL of the million Early Ford parts that went through his business !
                                                He used a few on his own car.

  Blown "A-V8" on street in LA - 1950 (centrifugal - came off a 38-40 Graham)
Graham Centrifugal with side-by-side carbs - check out the linkage.  This guy was very creative - he had to radically shorten the vertical drive of the supercharger to make it fit above the engine - they originally were very long as the supercharger was on top and the pulley was mounted down low on the side of the Graham inline-6.
