Jerry Yatch's 1959 Chevrolet
1959 Chevrolet Impala built in by Bill Hines for Jerry Yatch of Lincoln Park, Michigan. Bill customized the Chevy for Yatch before Hines returned to California in 1959. The car was also know as the Xcidian. Up front, Bill shaved away all trim and installed the antennas horizontally on top of the fenders. The grille was modified by adding 1954 Chevrolet grille bars. In the rear, Hines shaped new teardrop taillights in a radical curve to match the butterfly wings of the car. The taillights featured handmade lenses with round protruding plastic teeth and a fine chrome trim. The Impala also featured molded side lakes pipes and electronic doors.
