It could also need a cleaning, or may have petrified grease around the motor gears. But that being said, at least on my 55/56 antenna that is on my 54, it's loud, much louder than a modern equivalent. But I account for that some resonance from the void space it's mounted in and the fender itself. When I tested the antenna off the car, it was much quieter. But still, lounder than a modern equivalent. It has a much larger motor and mast shaft and length than anything modern. Also, it's not fully made of/encased in plastic, so that sound and vibration travel, and the fender shape and void space make for a great amphitheater for that sound.
