Gary Goers had that stuff, so you should contact the new owners to see if they still have them available.

This might upset some people but I must admit I used two chinese motor antennae on my desoto 58. I made the chrome bezels out of aluminium .
It is good enough for me , the costs of original ones were outrageous...one can see mine as "aftermarket"..

And then they are motorized too. That's actually kinda cool to flip a switch to see both go up. I have thought about doing that with some of mine even though I have the original ones, but I would still want to use the original plastic cover to keep it looking like the originals.

Hey Ralf,
We do what we gotta do....I'd copy your setup in a heartbeat...what antennas you using and where do you get them? I also can make the bezel if i have to...haven't found any replacement parts for the OEM's but i also have not tried Gary Goers new people yet...

Hello Billy , I used these antennas:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Schwarze-12V-Automatische-Antenne-Auto-AM-F...

The bezels I machined out of an aluminium bar and carved the shape against the fin by hand with my little angle grinder. It was a little tricky to make the bezel stay put in the wise
while I was grinding and the polishing of the bezel was also interesting.
Good luck!

How did you anchor the antenna masts to the new bezels or d they go all the way to the bottom when they retract? What does the under trunk mounting look like? Pics please? Inquiring minds want to know... Thanks Jeff

The antenna`s own top nut and half dome washer was used. Also the antenna`s bracket was used to anchor the bottom of the antenna to one of the rear light
bolts. I can`t get a picture of the installation since it is behind the divider and that I won`t remove .
But I can take a close picture of the bezel if you want to. I am away a couple of days so it will be on monday probably.
