I'd like to install one of those cool billet antennas on my 67 coupe. Anyone else have one? They screw onto a base with a stud, perhaps off of another type of vehicle.

Aluminum conducts a lot better than steel. Only a little less than copper! Main problem
with an aluminum conductor is keeping a good electrical connection.

I had one of those on my F-250. It looked cool and I liked it, but it wouldn't stay tight. I'd be driving along and notice my antenna moving back and forth when stopping and starting. I'd tighten it again, and it would hold for a week or so. I finally got it nice and tight and the first time I went through the car wash, it snapped off.

There's nothing special about billet aluminum!
You can buy the original antenna for less and
I think it looks a lot better.
