Very correct kit for the 1973! Not only does this kit include all the correct hardware, but also a photocopy of the original Ford template showing where to place the antenna on the passenger side fender. The rectangular base gasket is actually not correct for a Mercury Cougar as it has a Ford Mustang part number and is of a different shape and thickness. To retain the exact, correct angle on your 1971 - 1973 Mercury Cougar mast you will want to reuse your thicker original gasket. We usually have used gaskets in stock if yours is missing (click here to go to antenna gasket listing).
Replaces Ford part # D1ZZ-18813.
*NOTE* "We appreciate the fact that you, the Mercury Cougar enthusiast, choose to buy items such as this from us when you often are able to find it from a large Mustang vendor for a little less. When you continue to support us in this way we can continue to offer you service and expertise you will find nowhere else on this planet. If you choose to price shop and still rely on us for the information no one else has (or is willing to disclose) that is OK too, we appreciate your business as well! Thanks for your support the large and small ways. We need you both!" Don R.
