I have the Stock radio and ant.
in my wagon.

Wagons use a different fitting since the ant are mounted to the sloping side
of the right front fender.

Has anyone found a replacement antenna that is simply a whip style
that fits in the same exact hole? It would be helpful if the cable
it came with was compatible to the radio also.

I bought a variety of units but the fittings wont line up and the cable
would blend into the existing female connector remaining on the original
car's cable.

If needed I would buy a new radio to get the new antenna to work
but I think my limiting factor is getting a normal looking antenna first
and then fit the radio in second.

Ok folks - Who has done this already and has sage advice?

Thanks
Shrimp

What is wrong with your original antenna?

My original Ant. was stopped in the UP position when I got the car.
A few months later I went to a car wash.
It bent the ant back so it looked like I was going 200 MPH all the time.
I decided since the AM/FM was still OK just to replace the ant.
Then after I got the fender apart and removed the old unit, I did not see
any good adapters to blend the whip ant. to the fender slope.
So I decided to ask around to see if there was a whip ant. kit available.
I figured I would just swap in what worked for someone else.
Why blaze a new trail in the forest when there is perfectly good trails
nearby ?

I can also replace both the radio with a modern unit and then
I still need a whip ant. with a slope on the adapter base.

So research first and then I would order the right stuff !
I am thinking of sending an email to Crutchfield and saying I
have a 1996 Caprice Wagon. They must have a kit.

Going to the carwash was your downfall. If the mast is good, you can still get the cable. There are no more masts.
