    Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I have with me a couple of different short 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 short 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 short 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 short antenna literally installs in a matter of minutes, you simply unscrew your factory antenna, then screw the new short 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 short 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 short options available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

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

    Excellent Radio Reception. If you live in an area with a strong radio reception, there's no difference in the quality of the radio reception. If you are in an area with a poor radio signal, the radio reception may be affected. All you're losing is 21 inches 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 SpeedForm antenna will fit right under your car cover.

    Quality Build and Finish. The SpeedForm 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 SpeedForm one. It can be installed in under 5 minutes.

    Application. This SpeedForm Black 8 Inch 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

    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.

    • There should not be any rusting issues, adding anti-seize or any type of rust inhibitor is never a bad idea when installing any part.

    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.

      more discrete

      much more smaller and discrete than the stock antenna, can be used in car wash as long as you have it on tight.

      Small but nice

      I like the look of the small antenna on my car. Work good but not quite like the full size antenna. I will keep the shorty on my car. Instructions about one minute.

      Nice.

      Obviously the stock one is ridiculous. 15 seconds to install. I'd get this one over the 14" or whatever it is. Considering thread locker but I haven't found it loose yet in the last week I've had it. Have yet to take it thru the car wash but seems flexible enough to be fine. Might want to just take it off anyway, doesn't take long.

      I bought so I could leave it on in the car wash, but when the car came out, it was bent over. It is not flexible enough for the car wash.

      Can’t really give a review of its functionality as I don’t listen to the radio. It looks however.... awesome. If your looking to get rid of the factory CB antenna this is worth every penny.
