'73 dealer-installed CB radios and antennas?
#1
nuke 
Does anyone have information on what make(s) and model(s) of CB radios and antennas were offered as "official" Ford-endorsed dealer-installed accessories for the 1973 model year?  I have that info from 1962 through 1968 (Raytheon Ray-Tel) and somewhat sketchy info for the late 1970s (Ford Aeronutronic, which were made by Motorola).  I am trying to determine what kind of "correct" CB radio to install in my '73 F100 Explorer pickup.  I suspect the antennas may have been left up to "dealer's choice", to be procured locally to meet the customer's needs.  Any help appreciated.

I have a 1973 Ford Accessories catalog, but no mention of CB radios. Most of the accessories listed are car related but also see some Bronco luggage racks. Don't see any pickup items.

I once owned a 78 Granada with a factory installed CB. The mic had a large plug that you plugged into a socket below the glove box. It also had four wheel disc brakes. Very unusual options in a Granada back then.
