I voted for the stately Continental.  It's the least cluttered design and a definite improvement over the 1958.  John, great job finding pics of all three cars in the same color.

Like Pete, I prefer the clean uncluttered design of the Continental Makes IV.

This one was easy.  IMPERIAL all the way!  The Caddy and Continental for '59 were just too over the top and huge for my eyes.  I know the Caddy is iconic today, but honestly the more I see of them, the more I'm not a fan.  And with regard to the Continental, if it were up against a '61, I'd vote the '59 all day.

Imperial for me. I just love this styling generation, even in its third year!

Caddy, Lincoln, and then Imperial.  American classic luxury.

No interest in luxury boats. If you live in the flat lands they sail along quite well on a flat straight interstate highway, but I live in hilly, twisty, turney back road northern New England no interstate within 50 miles.  Grew up where no could afford luxury cars and the roll from side to side as you drive the some what twisty roads or rough sea's for the boats.

To be honest I'm not a fan of any of these for '59.  However I much prefer the styling of the Lincoln, a distant second is the bloated and overstated Cadillac and dead last is the Imperial, ruined by its grotesque grille.  All 3 improved  greatly in 1960 and again by leaps and bounds in '61.
