    I would cap all those off and run all new wires for a stereo system. I never mess with wires after someone else has fawked with them couse you don't know if someone rewired/fawked up the wires.

    It's less work then trying to figure out what wire went where !!! You said it's a 75 ??? That would have been one speaker in the center of dash. So you'd need to wire the speakers anyways. Might as well wire the Red-swichable hot. Orange or Yellow-non switchable (Constant) hot. Black-ground. while you're at it and know everythinng is right !!!!!!

    I own a 76, and it came with only the one in the center of the dash. Thats it, so would think the 75 would be the same.
