Radio Antenna

Post by 71bird » Sat Sep 15, 2018 12:11 pm

Does anyone have an original 71 antenna that is out of their car, that I could get a good picture of the base. I can't seem to get this repo attached to the fender right, maybe it's just not made right.
Thanks

It's been a while since you posted this question. Have you solved your problem yet? I'll have mine out within a couple days.

No, I haven't. I was wanting to see an original, the part inside the fender to compare it to the repos. Thanks

Sometime after I bought the car I discovered that the previous owner had hidden the antenna in the space behind the plastic splash guard. It was tied to the fender support and the bezel and nut were missing. I can't be certain that the base is original. When it's all assembled on the fender, the antenna leans slightly outward. This is determined by the bezel rather than the base. In the photos, the view is as seen from looking backward through the fender.

Not sure why, but only letting me attach one pic at a time.

I believe I got the bezel and nut from Year One.
