Really hard to guess what it fits but I think we can agree the switch is of the period but not Packard so maybe the antenna is not either. When Doug was buying Packard parts in the 70s from closed or changing brand dealerships he would often find something from another brand the dealer had also carried mixed in with the Packard stuff.

I understand as a dealer stock I bought out included Chrysler parts and that my very well be where this came from.

Here’s another antenna that may be easier to identify as I believe it’s ‘55 and/or ‘56 Packard. It’s virtually identical to the ‘51-‘54 type except for the coiled tube which I presume is missing its end as the nylon is sticking out. Other than that, it works well.

Those tubes go in that part in motor.

The cable still can be used. The antenna will just be shorted.

Riki, I'm not sure I understand what you mean. The tube IS in the motor. The other end, though, is missing a section of the aluminum but rod or not. If not, the travel is still the same as it should be.

However, whatever holds the aluminum tube in place isn't there. Does anyone have the clip and screws or even a complete tube assembly?

Don't see this. And the drain tube.

And that brass coupling is all that holds cable.

Yes, that's what I was saying was missing and that I need one should anyone have it, or even the compete tube assembly.

Hey Don I know this is an older post but I do believe that is a Cadillac antenna. I’m referring to the first antenna on this thread.
