Since it was originally FWD, it's quite odd at a first glance.

I believe 'gasser' referred to a car that could have any modifications but had to run on pump gas.

They had a front V-8 with a straight axle, and they didn't tub wheelwells back then so the big tires stuck out of the wheel arch.

The front axle was the first thing I noticed.

I always thought gasser was short for pro gasoline class as opposed to fuelie.

Prezactly. A 'fuelie' would burn alcohol or nitromethane.

A rebuilt Zombie Datsun with 2 more doors and a straight axle - interesting where vehicles are headed!
