Default Power Antenna

With all the chatter in other threads regarding finding a universal RF fender mount power antenna that will fit 55-56-57 Chevys, one would think this is a marketing opportunity for Danchuk. It seems that a few years back some were able to get Metra Antennaworks 44-PW6 flexible shaft power antenna to fit it 55-57 Chevys. But, that model apparently has been discontinued.

Danchuk...how about stepping up and provide a power antenna that will fit RF fender for 55-56-57 Chevy??!!

I cannot comment on the quality, but from experience I have found that electric antennas would usually play up one way or another then stop working altogether.

They sure look good though

My experience is the opposite...never had a problem with any power antenna including Metra aftermarket unit I installed in a Camaro years ago.

Default Fornt Power Antenna

I bought a Hirschmann Power antenna for my 57 Chevy. It was pretty easy to install and it works great! No more issues with car cover going over the antenna or having to push it down to get my cover on. The best was i paid about $75.00 for it!!

Which Hirschmann antenna dd you use? People have said that most power antennas won't work due to interference with the upper door hinge. The mast has to be about 8.5" long to clear that hinge, from what I can tell. None of the Hirschmann's are that long.

Does your antenna point straight up or is it angled somewhat? Do you have any pics of the installation?

This is as close as I can come....

http://www.bimmerspecialist.com/usa/.../921-738-003/3
http://products.hirschmann-car.com/S...2_1057_324_325

But from my measurements that antenna won't work on a 55-56 because it will interfere with the door hinge. Maybe it will work on a 57.
