Ok guys, having been fortunate enough to have owned two Superbirds over the years, I have a question. Does the bird have or use a special radio antenna? The car I previously owned AND the car I now own, had/have an oval shaped radio antenna...including the tip as you can see. No other 68-71 Mopars in our stable have an oval or 'flattened' antenna, they are ALL round. It's known that the factory, back when these cars were built, may have sourced from different vendors. I'm just curious how many other original Superbirds out there have oval shaped antennas???

GM used oval antennas on many of there cars. They look just like the one in your pic. My 66 goat has that. Most older pontiacs have them. And many chevys.

My vote is for a round telescoping mast antenna for your bird.

I assumed the 200 mph plus speeds of the Superbird would have warped the normally round antenna into an oval shape therefore reducing drag at said speeds.  smilielol
