There were few changes for the 1959 model year Corvette; perhaps GM figured people still needed time to absorb the 1958 styling.

The styling was toned down a notch as the faux louvres disappeared from the hood (above) and (below) the trunk "spears" were gone.

There were minor revisions to the instrument panel in 1959. The glass in front of the gauges was convex, which reduced the glare problem with the flat glass of the previous year. All tachometers offered redline and safe limit indications.

Left: Brochure illustration shows the dashboard which was completely revised in 1958. 1959 additions included a storage bin below the grab handle. A "Corvette" script was added to the anodized aluminum area behind the grab bar.

1959 is best
I think 1959 is the best looking Corvette ever. It was a big improvement when they deleted the chrome on the trunk and the hood louvers.

Did the 1959 Corvettes have a trim tag?

1959 'Vettes are gorgeous...no doubt. But, I think the '58 chrome appointments are tasteful and the '59 looks a little more bland side by side without them. Again, I LOVE these C1's no matter what year.
