I really like the 58 followed by the 57.  The 59 seemed square and a bit awkward to my eye.

The '58 for me.  I like all three though, and would take all of them in 1:24 scale.

This is hilarious.  Each night my wife looks at the "Which One" choices with me.  Sometimes we vote the same, but other times not.   On today's cars, she looked at the '57 and '59 and then then commented that she couldn't see the "front end" of the '58, so she was going with the '57.  I went to my photos of the '58 and showed her the "front end".  This is when she cracked me up when she said, "ewwwu....if I chose that one, I'd have to check myself in".  I took that as, she doesn't like the '58.  I told her I voted for the '58 and she said, "I don't know if I can live with you".  Smile

Like George's wife, I'll take the 1957. I would however, choose the 1958 second.

The '57 comes first, then the '59 and '58; but the three years are all really attractive designs and I'd be happy with any one of them.

The '57, just for the extremes of the era.  The next two were kind of fussy IMO, with the '58 being styled as "got to be different from the '57" and the '59 being the return to the box.  I was driving a '56 Plymouth Belvedere 2 door hardtop in that time.

Back in the day I liked the '57 and the '58 but the '59 turned me off. The '58 is my pick followed closely by the'57 and still don't care for the '59 styling. 

After checking these pics I want to change my vote, a tie between the '57 & '58. Trouble with 3 way picks is a three way tie is rare, '59 still not so good.

I prefer the  design of the '57 followed by the '58. The '59 is just ugly. I'd take a '59 Impala any day over a Galaxie.

Ford me it is the 57.  Cannot not really compare the 58, since it is a side shot.

1957. Always liked its looks. 1959 next. Do not like the 1958 facelift.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.
