FYI, the rear antenna works fine with a new repo. AM-FM.  I've got one in my 68 right now.  No problems.
As John says, however, the rear antenna is limited, and even the original AM radio has limited range and a fair share of static here in the NC mountains.

Another thing to remember is the rating of the speakers.  Stock speakers are 10 Ohm and all aftermarket are 4.  If you run the 4 Ohm with a stock radio you will be pulling over twice the current through the radio and run the risk of burning things up.

Any yes, best antenna reception for any frequency is a , , or full match to its wavelength with the full match obviously getting the best reception.
