Thanks Dr Darby - I'm ordering one today.
I like the way it lies down in line with the A-pillar Cool

Don't confuse it with the regular vanagon antenna


After a closer inspection the regular Vanagon antenna would point the staff up, while this cool one lays it on the A pillar!

Wait, the aircooled 80 vanagon had it flat to the A pillar and had a little plastic clip at the top to hold it.

Damm kids broke the one off the parts shed Laughing

It's the same cowl mount antenna used in pre-67 beetles & bay window-down busses. Don't confuse it with the regular vanagon antenna that a 67+ beetle uses, this one mounts flat to the body and is available with a black or chrome base.

They are quite common on ebay.co.uk. I think they are around 20 gbp. I need to get round to changing mine-another job for the winter!
