    I see on the site that the antenna was moved to the windshield around 4/4/1993. Has anyone been able to figure out what serial number was the last to receive an external antenna? Mine was built around 3/16, #378. I'm sure mine's not the last, just curious...

    @Joseph Volpe I don't have all the MDH's for 1993, so it would be near impossible to say. The Vipers in 93 didn't come off the line in VIN order or anywhere close to VIN order.

    I have a Viper built 03/31/1993 VIN xxx286 and one built 04/14/1993 VIN #409, where it gets crazy, one built 03/29/1993 VIN xxx470

    Someday, I may have all the data, but I'm not holding my breath :| :)

    Thanks, Jeff.

    This would be a great time for the owner's of these cars to send the build date and VIN to Jeff.

    Interesting. So which of those cars had an antenna?

    Hesitate to say, However... Jay Herbert (the fine gentleman that started the IVR) noted that same date you posted of 4/4/1993. The Equipment List that I use does NOT include antenna location. Not sure how Jay learned of that date, however, if Jay noted it, it is fact, he had reliable access to data back in the early years. Unfortunately, most that call FCA with these kinds of questions can't get them answered either because a lot of items like Antenna Vipers was not tracked in a reliable way.

    Best of Luck on your search
