There were few changes for the 1959 model year Corvette; perhaps GM figured people still needed time to absorb the 1958 styling.
1959 Corvette hood
The styling was toned down a notch as the faux louvres disappeared from the hood (above) and (below) the trunk "spears" were gone. Years later the change is considered to be the correct move as 1959 / 1960 Corvettes genrally get higher prices than the 1958 model.

There were minor revisions to the instrument panel in 1959. The glass in front of the gauges was convex, which reduced the glare problem with the flat glass of the previous year. All tachometers offered redline and safe limit indications.
