Austin Vert's New Antenna.
Hi to All,

Just wanted to give a quick head's up and a plug for Don at Ohio Mustang. I've had the original '73 fixed radio antenna on my car since i bought it, and like many guys with fixed antennas know it's a pain when you want to drop a cover on your car or go through a car wash, or for security at a show for example.

Don has come to the rescue, and sold me an antenna that detaches from the base plate, by simply unscrewing the mast, and screwing back in. Problems all solved!!Wink Bare in mind that this unit does not collapse all the way down to the top of the fender. That would have been a bonus, but i can very well live with the antenna protruding up like the original fixed one did. The unit is well priced, is good quality, and looks very original as well. Unless you wanted to go power, this unit is very hard to beat. I'd give this product 9 out of 10. Thanks again Don. See pics below. BTW - If anyone's curious, the object on the left front screen, is an antenna for the Alpine radio that has dat radio function. (Digital audio)

Your Reference......................



Many Thanks,


that's an other Item on my shopping list for next year, now I know where to get it from Smile

The top part of my antenna broke off and I would like to change it, but how easy/hard is it to swap?

Thanks guys,

Don supplies everything you need in the kit...... mounting screws, baseplate, backup pad, instructions etc. The wiring that runs off the mast has a circular rubber grommet, located at a certain length, that pops into the body where the door opening is,and the wiring goes up and under the dash, and an insert radio plug is already hard wired in to pop straight into the radio head. It's pretty much straight forward to swap over mp.

BTW - What type was your old antenna just out of curiosity?



Hi Greg that's looks soo goodB-)

Regards DK73

So I'm a proud owner of one Mach 1 73! Regards Lars DK73whistling
