Re: 35 roadster radio

Hi, There is no antenna per say. The actual wire wheel is the antenna. All you need is to purchase the cable kit from one of the suppliers. Maybe C+G ?

Re: Tool tray

Hi, I was always told that that went away when they used up all of the 1942 floor pans. My early 1946 convertible had one. My later 1946 coupe does not have one.
