Speaking from my '73 experience - you have to go under the fender. There is an access panel you remove and the antenna will come right out. You can replace it with another manual, electric or a generic one. There's loads of room there.
I do suggest you tie a string to the antenna wire before you pull it out; that will help you pull the new one in - assuming you don't reuse the old wire (as I recall you can unscrew it from the antenna).
As for the connector if you get a stock replacement it will have the same end but if you buy a different one you can get whatever you want.
