Hello
I saw these antennas at Ebay. Is this the original, if not original why so expensive?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1957-1958-1959-dodge-desoto-chrysler...

I do not think they are original. I have the same antennas on my Windsor bought cheaply on Ebay for a few years ago.
I personally feel that they fit.

(Original nos antennas that I saw a few years ago on Ebay, they would have $ 850. I have no money to buy them that)

Pic at antennas from Ebay, orginal?

If they're expensive, they must be real(-ly rare)..

Boy, that is a nifty looking '59 Chrysler convertible! The same set of antennae is on the '58 Plymouth in

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=27348&posts=28&start=1

I don't think they are factory original for a '57 - '58 Dodge, Plymouth, Chrysler, or DeSoto.

They are nice looking antennas. I have a set of those sitting on garage shelf. They are NOT original 1957-58 Plymouth (nor MoPar) antennas thou. I would say they are aftermarket ones. I planned to use them on my Fury but found NOS OEM ones instead - ones like in the third posting.

Ok it was what I thought they were not original, but very nice model of antennas.
Was funny how the "original" packaging looks to them.
And "after market" seem to have a value

Dummy antenna? So they are not functional? It is interesting that the "F" in Strato-Fin looks a lot like the "F" in Fury, Firesweep, Firedome, and Fireflite!

They might not be factory, but do look good on Windsor59's car.... the price is outrageous for them at $660.....
I see some for $100 starting bid, then good luck after that ... maybe someone should adk the seller why so much for a non factory part....

I didn't see this one until after it ended. Was this a 'Reserve' auction? or a 'Buy it Now' auction? It looks like the seller started with a $45 opening price.
Maybe someone should ask the BUYER why so much for a non factory part?

They may have a cable and some thing-a-ma-jigs included, but look at the rubber gasket. It is the same as the dummy antennae rubber gasket - no hole for the cable!

I do not think they are original. I have the same antennas on my Windsor bought cheaply on Ebay for a few years ago.

Joakim, I've got the same kind of dummys on my Dodge, I've been told they are aftermarket accessories from the (early) 60s.

I bought a set of duals a while back that were not original Chrysler parts, but it seems like the ad said N.o.s. dual rear antennas for 57-59 Dodge Plymouth. When I bought them I knew they were aftermarket, but thought they would look good anyway. When they arrived, they came with vintage mounting instructions that showed an illustration of a 57 dodge. Technically the antennas I bought were not misrepresented, they did however leave out the word aftermarket. A certain ammount of responsibility does have to be placed on the buyer to check before spending big money. 99.9 percent of the time I have been burned by a sellers description, it has beeb because I did not take the time to check the facts for myself.
