63 Fairlane Difficult Antenna Install
Have wrecked two new antennas trying to install in my 63 Fairlane. The problem is that metal portion that sits below the fender and out of sight is much too long. It's not possible to insert it in far enough, at any angle, to allow the 'collar assembly' piece to be inserted through the hole. I am replacing a broken Mustang antenna that was made by Pro Products that I installed about 20 years ago. One size does not fit all Fords on these antennas. A TRUE 65 Mustang antenna would fit my 1963 Fairlane, but these monstrosities do not. Can anyone share a success story and recommend an antenna that is actually installable? Last non-conforming antenna was made by Scott Drake.
