French Word Help?

I'm reading a trashy novel from the 60s about truck drivers in Africa on the trail of their friend who's stolen a lorryload of stuff, and am learning a great amount of "useful" vocab related to driving and parts of trucks and the like, also having fun reading some colourful scenes amongst the truckers and locals, including one character whose main claim to fame is his huge penis, which he delights in displaying & also comparing to the parts of other truckers... this "talent" has earned him the nickname Gatz-à-Gatz - so what does gatz mean?

The book is 100.000 dollars au soleil by Claude Veillot, if anyone's curious :)
