I pulled the stock radio out of my 65, it's AM only. But, when I looked in the back there was an antenna plug that was split. One went to the radio and one said stereo and the last one I forgot what it said, but it looked like a plug in for a antenna. What am I looking at? Perhaps this is the wrong radio? Thanks.

Posting some photos would be helpful to answer your questions. Also you don't need to start a new thread for the same subject (radio) if you have additional questions or comments.

Jack,

Open each of the duplicate posts and you'll find an "options" link.  The option is to delete your post. 😊

Jack, the 3 terminals are for Switched 12V/Speaker/Common (neg. ground). Unless you have an internal front/rear fader, that's all there is except for the antenna coaxial jack. Also, there's quite often no hook-up for the common because the radio cabinet is grounded. So, just 2-wires to the 3-contact connector.

As for the coaxial split, perhaps a previous owner added a splitter that happened to have stereo printed on it. The splitter would share the same antenna between the original radio and an after-market auto-sound.

I'm assuming no re-verb option with your ride.

Jack, I have some recent experience on Delco radios. If yours is not functioning, there's some interesting options out there.

I ended up repairing/modifying my '63 radio. So, I haven't tried these guys but I like what I see on their website!

I have a RetroSound unit in my 64 but I agree if these guys can do an updated system in a stock housing that would be really cool.
