1959 Dodge Coronet specs
Note: The ’59s are technically the same generation as the ’57 and ’58, but the following differences earn them a separate page here: Three Inches Longer, Almost Two Inches Wider, Pronounced Headlamp Brows.
Body Styles: hardtop coupe, post coupe, hardtop sedan, post sedan, convertible
