First of all, this in NOT a concours antenna. This is a reproduction Red Tip antenna suitable for drivers, survivors and anyone who wants that "Red Tip look" without paying an arm and a leg. Functionally, this will perform as an antenna just as well as its pricey cousin, but Red Tip Antenna aficianados will notice a few things: most noticeable is the black ball on our reproduction antenna where the original/concours antennas were chrome. Also, this antenna has a plastic body, not a metal one. Finally, depending on who you talk to, the red tip itself may or may not be a little too "tear-droppy" in shape. There is much debate about this in the Red Tip Antenna community - so much so, we don't dicsuss it in mixed company.
So, if you need a concours Red Tip Antenna, this is not for you. BUT, if you want to have a little fun and get the look, this little baby is what you need.
