My car came stripped to the max, so I don't have a clue about antenna wire routing.

I have an antenna mounting hole in the rear passenger quarter.

My doner front fender on the passenger side also has a mounting hole.

I lean toward using the one on the rear but don't know any pros or cons.

Can some one who's been there educate me?

thanks,

Mine was ordered with the rear antenna. Just installed new one. They're pricey though. If you need one there is a supplier in Florida. Very original and complete. NICE piece. If you need his 411 drop me an email.

My '69 has an AM radio & right rear non-telescoping antenna. Antenna routing is along passenger side under carpet and up behind back seat into right fenderwell. Ant. cable where it runs behind and under rear seat goes through a metal protective channel that's screwed to the floor pan. Don't have a build sheet but channel under seat is so grungy it looks like original installation that hasn't been touched in 30 years.

Thanks for all of the responses.

I lean toward a rear mount cuz it looks cool to an old dude like me.

It appears I should be able to come up with one that will do stereo for me and I now have a clue or two of how to route a long coaxial cable.

Since I am doing body work right now, I plan to fill the front hole and chase a radio and antenna to fit.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Tom

Tom,

Just gave you the info... The rear fixed mast antenna will work with a AM/FM stereo as well. The factory just didn't offer it.

Click on my pics below... I also thought the rear antenna looked cool too... Have a original AM/FM Multiplex stereo working just fine with the fixed rear mast.
