  My 5E 67 has it. The rear antenna option was available in 1967 and was for AM only. Not sure of 68 or 69 if it was still limited to AM.

I know of 2 68's both originally AM radios, both non spoiler cars & one was rear & the other was front..  So I'm not sure there was a standard for non spoiler AM cars...

All spoiler cars were front fender regardless radio
AM/FM were front fender
AM with no spoiler I've seen both ways...

The Options PDF is always helpful on those kinds of questions.  Also look at D80 about the spoiler issue.
My 12D 68 does have U73.

Or are we all mistaking your question? Do you mean when it happened in the assembly process?

Yes, that my question, When was a rear antenna installed at factory??  When option "U73" was selected?  I would assume.  Thanks

Obviously, when the order specified U73, the plant installed it; Fisher Body installed the front-to-rear antenna cable in the body, and Chevrolet drilled the hole and installed the antenna base on the rear quarter panel.

I can only imagine that they wanted the aerial for am/fm to be front fender mounted, in order to keep the aerial lead as short as possible for least signal loss at fm frequencies.
