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. In the days before Pro Stock, the A/Gas cars were the
fastest stock-appearing racers around. The Henry J was the idea of
Henry J. Kaiser, who sought to increase sales of his Kaiser
automotive line by adding a car that could be built inexpensively
and thus affordable for the average American in the same vein that
Henry Ford produced the Model T. The goal was to attract "less
affluent buyers who could only afford a used car" and the attempt
became a pioneering American compact car. To finance the project,
the Kaiser-Frazer Corporation received a federal government loan in
1949. This financing specified various particulars of the vehicle.
Kaiser-Frazer would commit to design a vehicle that in its base
form retailed (including federal tax and retail delivery
preparation charge) for no more than $1,300.00 (US$14,642 in 2021
dollars). It was to seat at least five adults, be capable of going
at least 50 miles per hour (80 km/h) for sustained periods of time,
and be available for retail sale no later than September 30,
