    So when I took everything apart to redo my interior I must have misplaced some sort of bracket which holds the radio in place. All I have is the plastic bezel. How do I secure the radio. Any pictures?

    There should be an L shaped bracket.
    On a factory radio, one end fastens to the back (or bottom, or side?...can't remember!) of the radio, the other end fastens to the metal structure behind the radio.
    In the front bottom of the radio, there will be two studs which stick out and thru the two "flaps" at the bottom of the radio opening in the dash board.

    Depending on your car (mine in question is a 72 Skylark) there is the "L" bracket as mentioned. It "props" up the radio securing via the bottom of the radio, and the long end of the bracket screws to a plate on the left side of the radio (aka the dash).

    My 67 GS has the same L-shaped bracket. It props the radio up from the bottom. My dash is disassembled right now too.

    I noticed there were two different shaped brackets when I looked on Ebay.

    My car had the Am radio stock. The previous owner had this cassette deck radio installed. File_001.jpg File_000.jpg
