Point Deduction for adding and locating a power antenna
« on: February 04, 2018, 04:24:11 PM »
I have a power antenna Ford show mounting it app. 11inches back from top of trunk.  For show purposes I would like to mount it up closer to the back window. Would that be a point deduction??

Guess your asking about showing at MCA?  Or would it be some other organization. Placed it in the section not knowing your intent

As if so (what ever organization) what class are you asking about. Since daily driven, occasionally driven, and the restored classes as well as unrestored are all very different in many different ways

It's highly possible that you would get deductions both in the body section and the antenna section since its a location and an equipment issue - two different ones

Ford's installation shows mounting 11" down from top of trunk opening. Would I lose points if I mount it up close to rear window drivers side? It is a original Ford Mustang 67 power antenna.

My first though is that if it is the one I am thinking of, it will work on a 67 Mustang but not a regular Mustang optional item. If it is the one I am thinking of it is for a full size car. It was a over the counter item that would fit a variety of applications. If that is the case (and it might not be )there would be a deduction issue regardless of location IMO. Others may have different information.

Yes , that is the one Iím thinking of. You might check the Mustang available options you could get from the factory when new. I think this falls into the over the counter catagory like spot lights , steering wheels , performance items etc. that were not available as a factory option but made by Ford to fit a variety of Ford applications Mustang included. That is my opinion . Others my have different.

Merging this thread with the other you started since the OP focused on possible point deduction when showing

+1 It was an over the counter item and since the cars were delivered without an antenna I guess the dealer could have up-sold the original owner if the part was available and for sale when the car was delivered to the dealership.  And salesman option list from the that time period would likely be your best source since I'm guessing that you don't have the original sale receipt/contract or your adding it to a car that it was not original to.

As for location a dealer (if you ordered the car - not one from the lot) would often put the antenna any where you wanted as long as you were paying for it. Getting judges to accept that location and it will fall on your shoulders to provide convincing documentation of your chosen location.
