Hey I am looking to install a newer more modern antenna for my 1996 gl has anybody tried that? maybe someone knows of a site that sells retro fit antennas. I am also willing to do some modifications if not to hard. thanks
You're kinda vague on what you're actually doing. I replaced a broken mast on my 98' Sable wagon power antenna. Believe it was a Metra piece. Actually yanked the whole unit, and lubed it up while at it. I'm far more handier than most though. Also put in a Hoffman power unit, replacing a broken power factory unit in another car. Crutchfield carries several different antenna's
Is this what you mean? The little black flames have since worn off, but the antenna is all stainless steel. The base is a replacement from ford. The antenna comes with adapters to fit most antenna bases as do pretty much all aftermarkets. So you shouldn't have any issue finding one.
