Try google images. Just go to Google and enter "1959 Chevrolet Gasser" to start with. Then try different searches from there. I doubt many builders choose such a long and wide car to jack up and turn into a gasser. Instead picking a lighter weight body such as a '55 or '56 post sedan. But who knows..... stranger things have been known to happen.

Do what Jairus says. You're more likely to find a '59 Biscayne or Impala or whatever Chevy called it's fullsize line that year, but you should be able to crib anything from one of those cars to an El Camino. I agree- you might be hard pressed to find such a huge car as a gasser... though it's not entirely out of the question.
