not sure. I wasn't getting good enough reception with the antenna I had. (I was at the radio station and couldn't get a good signal) so I connected the cb antenna to the am radio. now I get great reception.
yeah, I'm Krazi!

Yes all antennas will interchange (as long as they are factory ) the dealership installed radios and antennas were crap in there own ways , the best I found were the early pintos that you could extend them ,  they took four screws under the plate to screw into the fender, the cheep ones used a nut and hooks on the bottem , if you need one D1 I will look and see if I have an extra , later Blaine

I actually got the antenna for mine from a 1990s Ford Truck. Any car that uses the same rectangle antenna would work.
