1959 Chevrolet Apache Description

Gateway Classic Cars is pleased to present a 1959 Chevrolet Apache Gasser street truck for sale in our Atlanta showroom. She is powered by a 383 cu in stroker, with aluminum heads, Holley Strip Dominator aluminum intake, Holley 650 Carburetor, MSD 6AL ignition, Dougs wheel well headers, driving through a turbo 350 automatic transmission, with Line-Lock, to a 12 bolt posi-traction rear end with 3:73 gears. Consignor states the engine and transmission were recently rebuilt, each having 6,000-miles since rebuild, and 3,000-miles on the rear end. The steel body is in the patina style, painted in flat black paint with various stickers, and the interior is basic with racing seats, with 5-point harnesses. She screams like in the old days with the wheel well open headers you heard me she has no mufflers! The build information on the engine is documented, and contained in the file.

Here is some history for those who would like background on this exciting style of dragster. The term Gasser refers to a style of drag race car that was prolific in the late 1950s through the 1960s that ran on gasoline as fuel, as opposed to race fuel. These cars typically competed in heads up drag races that were classed by engine size and car weight. In the faster classes the cars used a straight axle front suspension that produced the intimidating stance that gassers are known for. Easily recognized by common features like the higher front end stance that was developed as a means of weight transfer to the rear wheels for traction, this style became popular later as builders attempted to achieve a traditional or nostalgic race look. These cars became fan favorites as the well-known racers began to run grudge matches for higher purses. In no time these matches were the top billing at many shows due to the crowd entertainment factor. Gassers were the top drag racing classes in the period that is now referred to as the gasser war years, which ranged from 1955 through 1968. In addition to the straight axle, most gassers also sported Halibrand wheels, no front bumper, and had a front mounted Moon tank. The gasser form was dictated by function and most builders looked to eliminate as much weight as possible. Having their exhaust pipes exit through the front fender to shorten the length of exhaust tubing is another common characteristic of gassers. Builders used 1930s through 1950s production coupes or sedans to create these highly modified racing vehicles. Late model cars were not allowed in the Gas classes until 1967, and the gas classes were totally eliminated by NHRA in 1972. They run today all over the United States and down under in Australia and New Zealand in vintage and nostalgia drags.
