I +always thought the difference was the hubcaps. I went online and looked at 59 and 60 Corvettes to see if there were any subtle differences. Funny, but I saw a lot of the same cars in both years. I know it at time has been her for not Corvette enthusiast to tell them apart, now that you brought it up, from the pictures shown on line, there how appears not to be any. Sometimes it a decal, mirror, trim or chrome strip, or exhausts, or just hubcaps, but going on line did not help.
