23rd series (all) rooftop antenna

I am interested in buying a complete 23rd series (all)rooftop antenna or parts. I am also interested in a blowup picture of the assembly and how to remove the old and replace.
Thanks for all your help!
Mike

Yesterday radio (no longer in business) sold these things. The catalogue is still up which shows how the thing went together. Not sure where to turn maybe Tucson Packard? Ebay is always out there-I found a vacuum antenna that way

Last time I talked with Yesterdays I was told he wanted to sell everything complete, and if not the molds were going to be scrapped.

Has anyone got any good news about the turnover or is the availability of parts also history.

When I talked to him he did not seem very happy.

I spoke with Jerry over the weekend. Too soon to go to press, but he feels he has a successor in the works; will not issue a "press release" until mid-late October.

Thanks, guys!
I went to Yesterday's Radio website and Jerry has a nice descriptive illustration of the parts of the antenna. It is a lot of help. I will remove it this weekend and take it apart and see what I am dealing with.

My 23rd series sedan came with a rooftop antenna, but it was broken. I tried to restore it myself after buying several used antennas for parts. I found it was very fragile and difficult to work on and the ball on the tip was missing on all my parts. The flat spring inside is not available and breaks easily. The cast parts are pot metal and they corrode. Rechroming pitted pot metal is very expensive.
After spending a lot of money I finally gave up and bought a restored one from Tucson Packard for about $150. This antenna is a bad design and I wish my car had come with a fender mounted antenna.

I also put my '49 Custom 8 in but it did not show up in the registry. I now have 6 Packards and tried to get them all in there, but only 2 made it.
