The fabled G-body was one of the most endeared rear-wheel drive cars to roll off the General Motors assembly line, and it has a plethora of aftermarket parts available to match about any application you can dream up. One of the new G-body classics, the fourth-generation Chevy Malibu, is becoming the gearhead’s choice as a performance platform for their modifying needs.

One such example comes to us from Nick Taylor, who decided to take his 1980 LS Malibu known as “Maliboost”, and create an LSX-swapped 8-second sleeper that’s a legit street car.

Taylor picked up his Malibu for a song at just $500 when he was 15 years old, but the car needed some work before it was track-ready.

“My dad made me cut all the rust and bad spots out of the floorboards, then make my own new floorboards for it. During this process my dad also had me weld in the roll bar since the interior was removed from the car. I worked on everything for over a year, and got it running with a healthy 355 cubic inch small-block Chevy as a starter motor,” Taylor explains.

The SBC that Taylor started with ran well, dipping deep into the low 12-second zone naturally aspirated, but that wasn’t quick enough for him. Working with Adam Hodson and Chris Bishir, Taylor began the process of swapping in a 6.0 liter LSX-based motor into his Malibu. After some tweaking with the Holley EFI system, Taylor was able to run a best of 11.97, and was now ready to mix some boost into the equation.


Adding the necessary supporting mods along with a BorgWarner s475 turbo, Taylor’s Maliboost put down 680 horsepower and was running in the 9.60s at the track. After some chassis upgrades Taylor was ready to really squeeze Maliboost hard and see what the car could do. A new 6.0 liter engine was sourced from a 2008 Chevy van and was upgraded with a Brian Tooley Racing valvetrain, Jarret Faggart Racing custom turbo cam, and a BorgWarner s480 turbo. These new parts, along with some tuning, netted an 8.98-second pass at 149 mph for Taylor.

You can look for Taylor and his Malibu at the 2016 edition of Drag Week, where he will attempt to improve on his 2015 third place finish in the Street Eliminator category.

Gasser (car)

Motor vehicle

A gasser is a type of hot rod originating on the dragstrips of the United States in the late 1950s and continued until the early 1970s.[1][2] In the days before Pro Stock, the A/Gas cars were the fastest stock-appearing racers around.[3]

Gassers are based on closed body production models[clarification needed] from the 1930s to mid-1960s, which have been stripped of extraneous weight and jacked up using a beam axle or tubular axle to provide better weight distribution on acceleration (beam axles are also lighter than an independent front suspension), though a raised stock front suspension is common as well. Common weight reduction techniques include fiberglass body panels, stripped interiors, and Lexan windows (sometimes color tinted).

The 1933-36 Willys coupés and pickups were very popular gassers.[4] The best-known would be the 1933 Willys 77.[4] While neither cheap nor plentiful, it was a competitive and lightweight choice satisfying the rules of the era (which required a ladder frame). At least one gasser incorporated a Willys frame in a Ford body to placate their sponsor while keeping it track-legal.[5][4] Keith Ferrell's Dogcatcher, for instance, was a 1936 delivery with a fuel injectedsmall-block Chevrolet, built for the class; in 1967, Ferrell deliberately left something off to run it in B/Altered (later, with a supercharger, in BB/A).

After the company revived, the 1937-42 coupés, sedans, and pickups were again popular with hot rodders and gasser teams, and again, comparatively low production leaves unexplained why they gained so much attention.[4] Ollie Olsen's 1940 coupé Wil-A-Meaner (driven by Bob "Rapid" Dwyer[citation needed]) won the 1961 Nationals' A/G title.[4] Between 1962 and 1964, the Hassel & Vogelsong 1940 coupé "was the scourge of B/Gas", winning the 1963 and 1964 Nationals and setting a 1964 national record at 11.34. In 1967, the Hrudka Brothers' 1933 panel delivery was a popular wheelstander.

Postwar Willyses were also used (such as the Bremerton, Washington-based Speed Sport Specialties 1954 Willys in B/Gas), but, despite being a better chassis than the 1955-7 Chevrolet, were never as popular as the prewar cars.

Combinations could be unusual. Fujimo, Too! was a B/G 1950 Plymouth business coupé (run by Adler and Trout) with an injected Oldsmobile and Hydro-Motivetransmission.

NHRA first licensed women drivers in gas classes in 1963, when Roberta Leighton, member of the Dust Devils Car Club and driver of an injected El Camino, was first admitted.[11]

Throughout the 1960s, the Stickle and Riffle Anglia, based out of the Rod Shop and driven by Bob Riffle, were frequent winners. Their only national title, however, was the B/G title at the 1967 Nationals and C/G at the 1968 Nationals. Riffle's best pass in B/Gas was 10.54 seconds at 128.20 mph (206.32 km/h).

At the 1965 NHRA Nationals, held at Indianapolis Raceway Park in Indianapolis, Indiana, 1941 Willyses driven by Dick Bourgeous (owned by "Big John" Mazmanian, sponsored by Engle Cams) and Doug "Cookie" Cook (the Stone-Woods-Cook gasser, sponsored by Isky Cams) faced off in A/GS. (Cook took the win with a pass of 14.20 seconds at 116.53 mph (187.54 km/h).)

Stone-Woods-Cook abandoned A/GS for Top FuelFunny Car by the start of the 1967 season.

Late model cars were first allowed in the Gas classes in 1967.

Mazmanian would quit the gas classes for fuel funny car in 1968.

Gas classes were eliminated by NHRA in 1972.[15]


Because they were primarily built for racing, these cars typically had the engine swapped to a larger or more powerful one, or the existing stock engine modified (often heavily). It was very common to fit a Roots supercharger modified from original use on General Motors two-cycle diesel truck engines and mechanical fuel injection, manufactured by Algon, Hilborn, or Crower.


With form being dictated by function, their appearance is often very top heavy and ungainly, largely due to front ends being raised higher than stock, to assist in the weight transfer during rapid acceleration (racing).[1] Having their exhaust pipes exit through the front fender well is a common characteristic of gassers,[citation needed] as is having bodies painted in flamboyant metalflakes, pearls, and candy finishes complemented by lettering in wild fonts.[citation needed] Most[citation needed] gassers also had ladder bars.


The name arose because they competed in a gasoline-fueled drag racing class, rather than one using methanol or nitromethane.

Gasser Straight Axle, Chevy Spindle and Brake Kits, 58-1/2 Hub-to-Hub


These kits include our gasser straight front axle, semi-elliptical springs, spindles, king pins, steering arms, tierod kit, brake kit, and hardware. Choose either 5 on 4-1/2" or 5 on 4-3/4" bolt pattern with standard brake kit or Wilwood brake kit. Standard brake kits use new rotors and GM metric style calipers. Wilwood brake kit includes dual-drilled hub. Brake lines not included. Shocks not included, but shock mounts are included. Assembly required.

Note: Wilwood brakes increase hub-to-hub width by 1/2".

Item Details

49-54 Chevy Spindles, Specify bolt pattern,
50" Wide axle - 58-1/2" hub to hub.

  • Not For Off-Road Race Use

Installation Tips

  1. If using steel wheels with Wilwood kit, you will also need to purchase (2) steel shims part 835-3007500. These shims will prevent steel wheels from galling the aluminum hub.
  2. Rubber brake hoses generally cannot be adapted to Wilwood calipers. The caliper inlet fitting is a 1/8-27 NPT. The preferred method is to use steel adapter fittings at the caliper, either straight, 45 or 90 degree and enough steel braided line to allow for full suspension travel and turning radius, lock to lock.
