  • Is this a Studebaker Roll Up antenna?

    I ASSUMED this was a Studebaker crank-up antenna for 53-58. Hey, the knob matched. But in looking at the ones Roy Valdez offers, it doesn't appear to be the same. It is not the 47-52 style, either.

    The distance from the center of the crank and where it would pass thru the fender is about 10 1/2".

    Notice the housing has two screws in it.

    Here's the top "nut."

    Notice the domed back of the housing.

    And the indented section on the housing. (Made that way.)

    Extended it is about 43 1/2" in three sections. Retracted it is about 11" tall. So what do you think? Were there changes between 1953 and 1958? Does this match any you have?

    Think later, 62-64 perhaps.

        My mistake,you are correct, it just looked like a Hawk antenna I had, but might have been on a 56-61.

          It is the more common AC-3012 '62-'66 Lark/Hawk Internal Controlled Type, hardly ever sold or installed in the day, but tons of left over ones sold later by Newman and Altman. [^]

            It looks exactly like the correct one for my 1960 car. It's in the accessory booklet. I found a nos one in the box and if I'm not mistaken, that's the same one. I have mine out right now with the kick panel. I'll measure it when I get back there.

              They were made for 1960 Lark. Also, they were made for 1960 to 1964 Hawks. I have 2 on the work bench. Hard to fix. But still working on it.

                  No, Roy. Did not see one at Turlock.[|)] Picked this up somewhere else. I'll never tell.[:I]

                  OK. So I'm getting some saying 1960. Some saying 62-66, etc. Anyone else?

                    These will not fit cars with the emergency brake pedal along that side . I have a NOS one of these which is for 62 and down ....its outside piece is exactly like my '66 ant. but the inside part will not fit because of the brake .

                      Kurtruk, was that the one on craigslist for $50? If so, good buy.

                            Who to believe? ? ?

                            I was reluctant to put on eBay without being more confidant about what it fits.

                            This is what has been said so far:

                            56-61 Hawk.
                            62-66 Lark/Hawk.
                            60 Lark. Also 60-64 Hawk.
                            Not for cars with Emergency brake pedal on that side.
                            56-64 Hawk.

                            Good Grief!!! I need to generate some cash. Anyone else care to muddy it up some more?

                              Some where I have an accessory booklet for C-Cab trucks showing one of these style antennas for trucks. Could this be one? Also, would they be a different length than the ones offered for cars?
