    I don't know if my '74 Fury had a factory installed power antenna because in the past somebody decided to stole it so when I bought it the car had an ugly aftermarket antenna.

    I bought an aftermarket universal power antenna taking the opportunity that I had to took off my passenger side inner fender to replace the blower motor but I can't realize how to install the antenna because it doesn't fit!

    This is the antenna I bought:

    If I'm right the stock power antenna for the '74 fury is one of these units:

    To me it looks almost identical but when I went to install it figured out that there's a support in the middle of the way so I don't know how it should be installed

    This is the support

    The antenna on the left is for the 74-78 cars.
    Aftermarket antennas wont fit into the cubby hole the antenna sits in.

    I was not expecting that :confused: When I bought the antenna the seller told me that it should fit on later model c-body cars without problems.

    So, the unique solution is to fin a NOS replacement? or can something be made to this antenna?

    What is that support for? I realized that If I remove it I will be able to install the antenna without problem
