1959 Chevrolet Impala owned by Ronald Heitman of Lyndhurst, Ohio. Ronald's Impala was also known as the "Candy Angel". The car featured molded Linoln side panels, individually frenched quad headlights, extended flare from wheel opening, molded rear and frenched 1959 Cadillac taillights. The bumpers were smoothed, the door handles were removed for a cleaner appearance. The grille was restyled by using steel rods, lakes pipes and decorated spun Moon hubcaps wrapped up the style.[1] In 1960 the Candy Angel was shown at the first annual National Champion Custom Car Show. Ronald came 3rd in the Semi Custom class at the show.
