Marc, Your car is truly beautiful! As I told you once before it is my favorite style. The antenna usually was connected to the chicken wire placed under the roof fabric, and the factory installed a shielded cable down the corner post next to the windshield in anticapation of the owner installing a radio in the future. The chicken wire must not touch the steel body of the car at any point. More modern cars ran 3 or 4 insulated strips under one or both running boards, and a shielded wire up trough the floor behind the dash. Both work almost equally well. Mine is a 1930 model and had the factory installed roof antenna. LeBaron may have had their own method however since they built the major portion of the body.
