Product Research


Compatibility: This antenna is designed as a stock replacement for select 1949 to 1977 VW Beetles, 1971 to 1979 Super Beetles, and 1950 to 1979 Buses (please use the Vehicle Selector to verify compatibility). The antenna is mounted to the side of the car body (from the outside) using two threaded shafts, held in place by nuts behind the panel. The diameter of the two required holes is approximately 1/2", with the cable attaching to the bottom shaft. The top support is adjustable; it slides up/down the antenna mast so mounting is more flexible. The 64" cable has a Motorola plug on the radio end and a threaded connecter on the antenna end. The cable also has a gasket for the firewall.

Retro sound antenna

Written By C-Rad, Sacramneto, Ca on Friday, August 09, 2013

I like the concept of this antenna. I just wish it was a little more durable. the antenna itself seems cheap with plastic mounts. I off road my vw bus and I am a little worried about is holding up to bouncing and branches.

Pros: New antenna for an older VW... Comes with cable...

Cons: Cheap plastic construction... Could be made with better quality...

This adjustable antenna was just what I was looking for. I have been looking about 6 months for an antenna to fit my 1940 chrysler that had a dual post side mount antenna at one time .This one from Crutchfield fits like a glove and looks great. I would recommend Crutchfield and this antenna to anyone . Thanks again.Crutchfield..... Jeff

Pros: Easy install, Looks great, Good price

Cons: none
