They do not mount in the same place as the regular manual or roll-up antenna. I would also be suspicious of the vacuum seals after all these years.

Yes I saw that and started to salivate over it a couple of days ago. Not for a 47 Champion (including mine) - just the Commanders it seems. Probably a good thing as my wallet may stay a little thicker!!

I sold one of these on eBay several years ago.... but not to a Studebaker owner. A Buick owner recognized it as being the same as what he needed for his Buick and he outbid the CASO bidders.
