That's going to be tough, I checked around on Corvette Forum, there was one fellow asked this same question 11 years ago.....not one response.
I believe those dimensions (templates) would be proprietary due to the fact there are competing after market Corvette parts suppliers selling replacement carpets.
If you could track down a restorer who's working on a '59 resto and trace out the old carpets, that may help. Good luck.

google '59 Corvette replacement carpets, some prices aren't too bad.

In honest opinion option1 buy a carpet set from one of the suppliers in the state they all come pre formed etc much easier to fit and cheaper in long run
Option2 A good interior trimmer should be able to make templates and then do carpets from scratch only real issue is pos more joins etc to try and fit round tunnel etc and normally a lot more money than off the shelf stuff we only go down this route if customer is after a unique colour

The carpets that are in it are OK and I've had a few hurumphs about putting in non standard carpets, but, I really don't like the finish!!! As I am in the trade (kind of) and I've got loads of guys who wouldn't mind sitting down and constructing a set from a bit of fine rug, I was thinking about adding a bit of luxury to the cockpit. Just to add insult to injury for all the purists, I'm also looking to redo the entire cockpit this winter in leather........I can hear the screams from here!!

The exterior and cockpit are the two last things to do having rebuilt or replaced just about everything else.

So, painted or wrapped?
