Exterior antenna delete - Fox-era delete plate work for our cars?


Recommended Posts

Title pretty much says all, but I'm curious as to whether the '71-73 fender will accept a '79-93 radio delete plate. Can't find a photo of a fender minus the radio, nor the bottom of the '79-93 delete plate.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:

Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.

Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.

Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

To answer your question, I don't know. Do you want a permanent delete or just temporary? I had my body guy weld mine up so it's completely gone, but the Fox body delete plate is pretty homely.

I figure I can get away with a delete plate for the moment; there is a dent on my right front fender which renders modification a moot point, and I'm rather partial to keeping it the way it is right now.

 

In short, the Fox delete plate would give me some easy flexibility. Might be able to have it plastic-chromed too, if the finish can stand the outdoors.

I know this is an ancient thread, but did you ever found an antenna delete plate that fit? I may end up going to hardware store to find a screw that fits there for the moment.

Sorry to say I haven't, Tony. Back end of the car is still in bits, so the antenna is still priority #20,409,234 in line.

 

I still put a hollowed-out tennis ball over the antenna stub when sliding the car cover on...

Get a hole cover for a kitchen sink, they're cheap and not bad looking.
