1959 Chevrolet Impala restyled by Ward's Body Shop in Alameda California for Roxy Pearson of Oakland, California. The front was customized by installing a tubular grille and side hoods were added to the headlights. The door handles were shaved and the doors were electrically operated solenoids. The wheels were glamorized by reversing the rims, which were thickly chrome plated. Accessory lakes pipes were installed along the rocker panels. The taillights were extended and molded to the body. Four 1958 Chevrolet lamps complete with chrome rings were installed in stead of the stock lens. Dual spotlights were added to make the roof look lower.[1]
