help wiring 63 t-bird am/fm radio

i purchased a used original 63 t-bird AM FM radio, problem is that it has more wires then the original AM radio. i really need help on connecting the am/fm radio.
the am/fm radio has;
on the side is a black wire and a blue with red strip wire.
on the side is a connector with 4 connections = one male and 3 female.
can someone please help me on how to connect what wires to where or what wires are to do what.

Where is the radio located on that diagram? All I see is a power wire out of the fuse block & power wire to radio light.

Re: help wiring 63 t-bird am/fm radio

Go to Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket and create a free account. After you upload your photo, click on "continue to my album" and you'll see your photo with 4 different links at the bottom of it. Click on the direct link to copy and paste it and in forum message, click on the Insert Image and a box will pop up, right click on that box and paste the link you've copied from photobucket. I'll put together a how to in a little bit and post it.
