What is the FM antenna part # that should go here? Better yet, does anyone have one laying around?

I can't get reception on any FM station. I'd imagine it's because my antenna went missing at some point before I acquired the vehicle. I assume this is normally the FM antenna.

A picture is attached.

I never did do a write up because i haven't verified the strength of it as an antenna (I don't really listen to the radio, ever) I also haven't grounded the shielding on the cable like the original antenna had.
it seems to pick up the big pop station well, but the radio alone could probably pick that up.

I do know that the short antenna i just installed on my corvette cant pick up any AM radio at all so that might be an issue too

AC Delco 13222572 looks to be the one. ABout $30. Or general fit aftermarkets for 1/2 that.
