Radio wiring

Buddy has a 67 Camino and wants to put a different radio in it. Old radio has receptacle for the standard plug, while the radio he wants to use just has wires coming out the back. Really don't want to cut off factory plug and start splicing. Any other way? Searched but didn't find anything similar.

Re: Radio wiring

Run power wire(s) to fuse block, Ground to somewhere on dash, and run new speaker wires! Easy-peasey!
Of course you will need to identify which wires are which from the radio.
Aftermarket radios usually have 2 power wires, red and yellow, 1 to ACC (switched for radio power) and 1 to Bat (always hot for memory) Black to ground, and different colored speaker wires. Also they usually have a blue wire for power remote for power antenna or amp.
Hope that helps!
