Review & Install Video

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

Sleek 8" Design. Ditch that ugly 29” eyesore Ford calls an an antenna, and replace it with a sleek 8” Shorty chrome 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 polished chrome 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 Chrome 8" Antenna is designed to fit all 1979 to 1993 Ford Mustangs including the LX, LX 5.0, GT, and SVT Cobra models.

Fitment: 1979 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 Details

Does this Antenna come with a chrome base? I am kind of into the chrome look and wanting to put more of it on my car. I was looking at the video and noticed that he mentioned a chrome or satin base. I was looking around the website and couldn't find it. So does it come with or do I need to look a little harder?

  • The base is actually for the 2005-2009 Mustangs unfortunately. We don't currently carry a base for the 94-04 year range.

    Review from Fixed Chrome Antenna - 8 in. (05-09 All)

    Not perfect

    My experience was similar to several reviewers in that the threading of this item was poor and I had to file down the threaded end in order to install the antenna. I should not have to make alterations in order to make a simple part like this fit. Also, once installed the antenna will not screw down to a stop making me wonder if it will fly off some day and kill someone. Other than that the antenna is much better looking than the black whip Ford installed at the factory, but I am not happy with the poor quality of this aftermarket item. They need to test fit their pieces before packing them for sale.

    Nice

    Really dressed up my 96 red Mustang, only reason it didnt get full 5 is because at certain times when I am driving I completely lose reception on 2 of the stations and others fade out a bit. I live in Pa in the mountains so it may have something to do with it but I am thinking about switching to the 14 inch chrome.

    Looks great but ....

    I had purchased the the short black antenna to go with the rest of the look I wanted for my 2006 pony, but it bent easily and rusted so I went with the new chrome version. It looks great, but not quite what I really wanted. Hope it last longer than the previous one

    Great product, but I wouldn't recommend the chrome base.

    Very satisfied with this antenna, finally got rid of the stupid fishing pole ford liked so much. No problems with it, doesn't wiggle around in the wind, looks great. I did not like the chrome base for the antenna that you have to purchase seperate. It was bent on delivery and does not cover the entire base. It literally looks like it was cut by a cheap machine. Recommend the antenna, NOT THE CHROME BASE

    I bought this product because i got tired of the shaking factory antenna and because im going with a "chrome look" on my car. Because this antenna is only 8 inches long, it doesnt shake, fits snug, and shines great! Thanks AM!

    Chrome Shorty Antenna

    Looks much bettet than the horrible stock antenna. Dont know what Ford was thinking when they put that on the car. Lucky us Ford guys have AM for these great aftermarket products. Overall its smaller but gets the same range as the old fishing pole before haha. Very nice.

    Perfect touch of chrome

    Decided to try chrome instead of black and turned out to be just the right touch - very subtle against the black. Super easy to install; just unscrew the old antenna and screw this one in.
