Not sure about the real early coupes, but on my 86 GT the rear antenna is 
electrically amplified. It is pretty short. but when hooked properly I have 
never had a problem with reception. This was one of the first questions I 
had when I bought the car. The window sticker mentioned an electric antenna, 
but it didn't go up and down. I quickly learned its not electric in the 
up/down sense, but has an electric amplifier in the base of the antenna.
