Is it a power one? If not do you know who makes it?
Thanks!

Not power and just barely fills the hole in the fender. Found on ebay years ago. Possibly this: https://www.amazon.com/AntennaMastsRus-Antenna-Chevrolet-Chrysler-Plymouth/dp/B00PBBKT5O/ref=pd_sbs_2/136-2261461-3349718?pd_rd_w=S07E0&pf_rd_p=8b76d7a7-ab83-4ddc-a92d-e3e33bfdbf03&pf_rd_r=79Z3013AZDN7AXCTXRYS&pd_rd_r=a4e331cb-7392-44f0-8f88-dfae34cc79f3&pd_rd_wg=DV3ST&pd_rd_i=B00PBBKT5O&psc=1

Thank you I definitely like the price of this one plus the ability to completely collapse it but I can't hang with the fishing bobber looking mount.

I'm using a fully automatic/powered antenna. My stock AM radio got a remote signal wire straight from the on/off pot. Can't tell of factory or added ( it looked pretty much factory ) so when I changed to an AM/FM radio, installed same wire at same point and voilà... still worked.

Any fully automatic antenna you try to find will come from China, so won't be too diff one from the other. The only real problem you can get with these is if the bezel coming with it will fill the fender hole. When I got my last antenna ( yes, of course being from China didn't last long really much so I have bought maybe 2 or 3 in 12 years, but... my Charger is/was a real daily driver ) I had to reuse an old bezel and mix some parts from some older antennas bezels.

I hear ya. I was hoping to stay away from an electric one just out of laziness.
