Default Squarebird Antenna

So I have the housing part but missing the antenna. Is there somewhere I can find one that will fit this? Rather not replace the entire thing unless I have to.

I care more about aesthetics than functionality. The radio works fine (aftermarket) and is setup in the glove box.

Unfortunately the post that the antenna goes on is missing so you can't install the replacement type that have a set screw. You might be able to buy a replacement antenna that will fit in the hole and use some epoxy to hold it.

Will any of the following work?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1948-66-FOR...53.m1438.l2649

https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-CLA...item2144e559d9

Or

The last one was an auction that ended unsold.

Thanks!

The second one you listed might work but will probably need some modification to look correct. The others won't work. There is no quick fix the way that the mast came out. Anything you try will be hit and miss so I wouldn't spend too much money.

If you want to have a new one:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/1958-59-FOR...sid=m570.l1313. Is only a bit expensive at USD 99,95.
