For me it's the Oldsmobile followed closely by the DeSoto and trailing the pack by a great distance is the Mercury.

Style wise, I find the Mercury most pleasing in 1959, not an especially pleasing year overall.The other two are pretty much a tie.

DeSoto then a tie for the Mercury and Oldsmobile. The color did it for me.

This one was so easy!  Hands down the OLDSMOBILE!  I like the other two as well, but against the Olds, it's a no-contest!

I will say this about the DeSoto.  Compared to the awful (in my opinion) styling of the '57 and '58, it was refreshing to see a nice looking '59.  As for the Mercury, I liked it, primarily because it was still a "Mercury" and not a "Ford".  The '60 was a beautiful Mercury, and then in '61 it was a Ford again.

1. DeSoto, Oldsmobile, Mercury. Although I wouldn't refuse any of them.

Normally I'd choose the Mercury, but the color of the DeSoto sealed the deal.  DeSoto today, although I wouldn't mind having any of them in my garage.

I like the Mercury.   Im not a big fan of the taillights treatment of the other two but all three are pretty cool overall.

Ditto, but 1 & 2 are very close.

Oldsmobile by a nose over DeSoto; both are very nice looking cars.  Mercury is a distant third for me; this year was the least attractive Merc ever made IMHO.
