I had to have a body shop take it out for me - looks like the fender has to come off! Obviously this business is called the antenna source. They are very helpful.
Your car has a particularly difficult to remove antenna, because it has a bend at the bottom, I believe due to a shorter fender. The mast has a load coil at the top, and they are extremely difficult to find, and very expensive.
It is a highly desirable option to have on a Cadillac, and one not often found on most cars. I believe that it was a $300 upgrade to the standard Cadillac radio. I was toying with installing a AM/FM/CB/8 Track radio in the 1978 Superior, and using a standard CB antenna in place of the fender mounted antenna, because of cost.
Last CB antenna mast (separate part) that I saw sell on eBay, the mast sold for just North of $350. Complete OEM AM/FM/CB antenna's were selling for over $500, and that was about 8 or 9 years ago, when you could still find parts for the 1977-1979 Cadillac models. Most of that inventory has since evaporated, and the cars themselves are no longer being found in the pick a part yards. Hard to believe that those cars are 40+ years old.

For 67 DeVille, I lost the ability to access the GM parts catalogs after retirement so you might need to verify that all 67's used this antenna. It's a bit pricey but when you need it..........



I have over $100 in parts for the front fender manual antenna on my 67 Pontiac 2+2 both NOS and reproduction. If I had gone with the correct (for judging) reproduction antenna mast which is oval instead of the round one like I used the price would have gone up probably another $75

I've seen the power antennas for my Pontiac advertised in the $400 range not including the dash switch or the wiring harness. I was tempted to add one to my car but I lost my body shop connection as he retired and sold the business.

All 67 Cadillac antennas the same easiest way to change is jack up pull Right front wheel and loosen inner fender save cussing and cut hands and arm.
