    The Shaft Nuts hold it on the front behind the Knobs, but there is a brace in back to the Cowl with one Nut to remove and the Antenna Cable is on the right rear, Power and Speaker wire Plug on the left Rear.

    You will have to drop the A/C Unit first.

      What Rich said. You don't have to disconnect any connections to drop the a/c unit -- just remove the nuts that attach it to the underside of the dashboard.

        Check that your radio is getting power and antenna input before pulling the radio. I would hate for you to go through this due to a blown fuse.

          leonard, if your looking for an upgrade check out Retrosound through Crutchfield. It looks stock but has many high end features. The bezel from a 68 to 72 Chevelle works with a slight modification to the dash trim and the Ivory knobs are a great match to the stock switches.

            You may need to remove the heater/defroster plenum esp. if it's an FM with the extra heat sink in the back.
