Assuming that the motor still runs and the mast is not damaged your antenna can be repaired using heavy gauge fishing line. Back in the '60s Cadillac published, in their factory shop manuals, detailed instructions for disassembling and repairing their power antennas. There's excellent photos in the '66 thru '68 shop manuals as well. I'm sure your power antenna works just like those. The Cadillac-LaSalle Club has a website with a Q&A forum. I'm sure someone there will be able to provide you with this information. If yours can't be fixed try gmpartsgiant or Tonkin online. Both are excellent sources for genuine GM parts for older models. I just got new seat back latch knobs (obsolete) for my 2000 Grand Prix GT Coupe from Tonkin. Couldn't find them anywhere else. They're brand new and still in the original GM packages too. Fair pricing as well. HTH. -Jim

You really don't need an antenna wrench, a good flat blade screwdriver and a rubber mallet work fine to get the top ring off.

The entire assembly for $50 is a good price. I paid close to that price for the antenna mast I replaced on my Taurus w/shipping. You also save yourself some headaches. Thanks Judge for the compliment.
