  11. Dear Reg, I really am grateful for the picture of your '38 Dodge coupe radio antenna placement. I had one other picture that showed the cowl antenna placement on the drivers side, but your picture is much clearer. Thank you very much. Doug Behnke
  12. I was able to locate are refurbish a radio for my 1938 Dodge Business Coupe. I am currently using a late model radio antenna but I would like to install the proper type and style. I would like to have a picture of the appropriate location and style of radio antenna. My research so far indicates that a cowl mount radio antenna was used. Any help would be appreciated.
