Description
Sleek 8" Design. Ditch that ugly 29” eyesore Ford calls an antenna, and replace it with a sleek 8” Shorty black antenna available from AmericanMuscle. Without the skyscraping 29” stock antenna, your Mustang will look much cleaner and eye-catching, for all the right reasons.

Excellent Radio reception. There’s no difference in the quality of radio reception! All you’re losing is 21” of unsightly steel from the front of your car.

Designed to fit easily under a car cover. You will never have to worry about damaging your antenna or having to take it off every time you put your cover on. This low profile antenna will fit right under your car cover.

Quality Build and Finish. The antenna comes in a sleek satin-black finish that is both scratch and weather resistant. It includes brass fittings and is manufactured from high-grade steel. The antenna fits like an OEM part, but gives you that sporty aftermarket look.

Easy Install. Modding your car doesn't get any easier than this. Simply unscrew your old antenna and screw in the new one. It can be installed in under five minutes.

Application. This Black 8" Antenna is designed to fit all 2005 to 2009 Ford Mustangs including the V6, GT, Bullitt, and Shelby GT500 models.

Antenna 8"

Super easy to install took 2 mins. Looks great, way better then the factory one that's a foot taller than you roof. It took a little long to get here but i live on the Oregon coast so that's expected.

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I have with me a couple of different shorty antenna options for 79-09 Mustang, available in your choice of either black, or chrome. Let’s face it, the factory antenna is a major eyesore and it certainly doesn’t do your exterior styling any favors. At nearly 30” in length, it begs the question, did Ford secretly install a CB radio in my Mustang that I’m not aware of? Well, with these new shorty antennas in 8 and 14” lengths, you can finally rid your Mustang of that goofy factory piece, once and for all. Besides the two different length options, the shorty antenna is also available in your choice of a low key satin black finish, or a more flashy chrome finish. Despite being only a third of the size of the factory antenna, you shouldn’t notice any difference in your radio reception, which should hopefully alleviate any concerns you may have. Besides looking great, the shorty antenna literally installs in a matter of minutes, you simply unscrew your factory antenna, then screw the new shorty in its place, as far as working on your car goes, it doesn’t get much easier than this. While you’re in the area of the antenna, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to freshen up that stock antenna base cover, using one of these aftermarket covers available in your choice of either chrome or satin. This extremely affordable part really compliments that shorty antenna, and its another one of those nice little dress up items to add to your ride. So if you’re tired of seeing that ski pole attached to your front fender that Ford calls an antenna, then you have to check out one of these different shorty options available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Has the resting issue been resolved? I guess I could add a dab of white grease to it before screwing it in but really shouldn't have to.

How is the reception with it being smaller?

  • Hi ErbStalk...I bought the 8" antena for my 2006 mustang and I don't notice any difference in reception! You should not suffer any reception loss either. Hope this helps you out!

Will this replace the stock antenna? I recently purchased a different short antenna from another web site and when the antenna came it had 4 different adapter screws for it and none of them had the correct threading to fit the base in my '09 GT. Getting the old antenna off is easy enough, but I want to make sure that if I get this one from American Muscle that it will screw in as easy as the factory one screwed out. Thank you.

  • Yes, old antenna screws out, new screws right in. No loss of reception that I've noticed. When you install, place a thin cloth or tissue between the adjustable wrench and the base of the antenna to avoid scratching the paint or scoring the base of the antenna. Tighten with slight pressure, not too much. Good product.

    Great appearance improvement

    Couldn't be easier to install, just unscrew the old antenna (or should I say Mast) and screw in the new one. Looks much better than stock and the reception is the same or better. Buy it!

    Shorty Antenna

    Antenna looks great, prefer it over 14". But the 14" does get better reception. (I have both) I would say deal with loss of reception unless radio is all you listen to. 8" looks much better.

    A must have

    The description when you buy says it all. Ditch the humongous antannae for one that is more subtle and performs just the same.

    Big improvement!

    Compared to the fishing pole that comes with the stock car, this antenna looks great. I would recommend this to any Stang owner.

    Review from Fixed Black Antenna - 8 in. (79-09 All)

    Underlying Problem

    Great "on the surface" but hides a dirty secret - the mounting screw is not weather resistant, so it rusts terribly, affecting reception and any hope of removing it for car washing, etc. Also breaks and bends fairly easily. I've given up after buying three.

    8-inch shorty antenna

    Good product though it cuts back on radio reception a lot, still get all the local stations pretty good, also think it might be too small? 12 inch might have been a better option.
