The New York Times writeup includes results of the crash test.

The 1959 BelAir was given Poor ratings across the board, and the driver would have been killed on impact. The steering column was driven into his chest, and the passenger cell failed.

The 2009 Malibu driver would have survived, with a chance of lower leg injury. Good across the board, except Acceptable in the driver's leg category.
