    1968 Deville antenna options

    Hi all.

    My car has had it power mast removed. Fix antenna now.

    Is there an option to go back to a power mast like

    or another Cadillac, later model type?

    The fixed one is crappy and was not the right one.

    Thanks.

    Why can't you just install a power antenna where the old one was? Unless the hole was sealed over by body work?

    That's my idea.

    My question was/is what kit? I listed one in the post. Would that work?

    I don't want to buy something that someone has already attempted to use. You know?

    Thanks.

    Almost any will work. There's a ton of space under the fender. Get a fully automatic though so you can wire it to still operate through your factory radio knob, if you still have yours. The hardest part is fabbing a new bracket. I have used plumbing pipe hangers to great success. Easy afternoon project.

    Good deal.

    Yeah, my concern is not space but the eschelon (sp?) and rubber piece on the outside.

    That kit has a bunch of different types so I figured it would work.

    But if I can something else from another model/type for cheaper that would be another option too

    Thanks.

    On the two that I have done, using no attachments on the top of the replacement antenna fit right into the eschutcheon tightly and worked out well.
