Elfs Ever Have Antenas?

Is this front fender Antena aftermarket or did Elfs have Antenas like this from the factory?

I bought my first Elf in 1962 (not new but very close) - it had no provisions for a Radio - no antenna (or hole for such). My next (Hornet) (1965) was similarly ill-equipped. There were no provisions for a radio - most folks fitted them under the parcel tray using a couple of "L" shaped brackets with a speaker nailed to the support bracket under the rear seat. Those who fitted an aftermarket centre console usually had installation capability for a radio and a speaker. Don't forget that in the early 60's we were just being weaned off the olde valve radios (humongous beasts) onto the transistorised miniatures like we have nowadays!!

I cannot comment on Radio/Antenna provisions for a Mk3 !

My current Elf antenna is fitted onto the top of the rear wing/fender, just behind the "C" pillar and is one of those spring based gizmos that I found in Philadelphia.
