Can someone help me with the proper color codes? My car didnt have a dash speaker or a radio in it when purchased. Ive also installed speakers in the rear package tray.
Thank you for your help!

Dash speaker had a pigtail that plugged directly into a matching pigtail on the radio, so if the speaker is gone, so is the wiring. Pic below is from the 71 wiring diagram. Full diagram available for download in the Wiki.


Radio power connector is a two place female rubber connector.
Light blue w/red stripe is radio illumination
White w/purple stripe is switched power.
Radio grounded through the chassis, so you'll need to pick up a ground on the dash frame etc.

Thank you very much Hemikiller, I'll start digging around in there.
