73 Mach 1. I got a cover because the garage situation is iffy. So I need to take the antenna down. I have been relegated to unscrewing the 4 screws in the base and laying it down because it doesn't have the square or hex base that signifies it can be screwed off. I'm scared to try cause I really don't want to break it. So was the stock antenna screw off? or am I just going to have to accept the fact that its going to be this process every time?
Well it seems that the antenna is fixed. I guess I'll have to get in the market for one that unscrews.
I've modified my mach with little updates based upon need. When my dash lights went dim, I put in a new overhead light with dual map lights. I think I found it in a LTD. My next project is the antenna. Like yours I have the original fixed antenna. I'm going to try to find a power one that will fit in the same hole. That's my answer. I'll kept the original for safe keeping, but that darn antenna is always in the way.
