I like both but give the nod to the Pontiac for what I perceive as its cleaner lines and therefore better styling.
Despite different brands, they seem to follow a similar style philosophy. I’m going with a tie.
I like both a lot. MERCURY in my opinion was the beauty of the '59 FoMoCo line-up and everyone here knows of my love of the GM '59 line-up. So this one for me friends is a TIE!
Pontiac gets my vote, I never warmed up to the 59 Merc.
Pontiac gets my vote, I never warmed up to the 59 Merc although an improvement over the 57 and 58.
Wide Track has the edge.

Two great choices, but as much as I really like the Pontiac, I got to go with the Mercury. The Mercury is definitely a much busier style, but that just gives it character.

As far as '59's go they are both nice. Mercury please.

The sleek lines of the Pontiac, make this a winner.
Mercury for me although it was close.
59 Pontiac was always my favorite Pontiac of the 50s
For me it's the "Wide Track" Bonneville by a mile.
Pontiac wins by a country mile; I love it. The '59 is the worst looking Merc ever made IMHO.
