does anyone know if a rear mounted antenna will interfere with a rear spoiler on a 67? also is there a template for drilling a rear mount antenna hole? my 67 has the rear antenna option but I never could bring myself to drilling a hole in a new GM quarterpanel.So now I would like to install the antenna only if it doesnt interfere with the spoiler.

my car has a factory rear antenna, and my spoiler hits it, I don't think you could get both options from the factory.

No 67's came with a rear spoiler from the factory... 68 and 69 could not have the rear ant with rear spoiler, the spoiler will hit the ant.

just an observation; although you could not get a first gen camaro with a spoiler and a rear antenna, even the promo picture for the 1969 pace car shows the two together. here is a photo link. i hope it works.

Thats interesting,maybe the antenna must be retracted to open trunk?

the 1969 camaro assembly manual shows the mounting location for both front and rear antennas. they are on pages 442 and 443. upc u63 and u73. ricks first gen has the templates in their catalog under body & antenna templates.

Wise decision... The "design problem" is with the spoiler...
Take a look at this thread:

69RSZ,

Whoops!  I just caught on to the fact that you are typing your responses within the quote blocks.  My mistake!  I should have read it closer.

At any rate, my 68 has a rear antenna but no spoiler.  I looked at the holes under the trunk lid to see how a spoiler would line up.  It's awfully close.

I have a 67 with a rear spoiler and rear antenna and the spoiler does not hit the ant. when the trunk is opened. I also owned a 67 in 1967. Although I did not have a spoiler, I did have the rear antenna. They both angled away (like + camber) from the body. This angle is determined by the fitting that attached to the quarter panel. I have seen a template in some reference literature that shows where the rear antenna should go.... Dan

Dan,do you have a pic of the trunk open with the antenna? im curious as to how close it comes to the antenna if it doesnt hit.
