87 442 power antenna question,

Just installed a factory radio back into my 87 Olds 442, it had an aftermarket unit that was missing the security faceplate so I was unable to test it previous, OEM radio came from another 87 442 it powers up and does come in but not clear due to the power antenna still being retracted. Question is where does the power or signal source come from to extend the antenna? All my previous G Bodies had the internal windshield radio antenna.
I haven't had a chance to test anything yet and I don't have a manual that covers power option like this.

Thanks

ok I saw a black wire with the blade connector taped to the back of the radio case, and I had 1 wire left floating around the back of the dash that was butchered, I didn't notice what color that wire was though. might be it, thanks.

this might help ....

 
The plug inside the car is behind the glovebox. There should be one under the hood as well.

Not sure, GM circuits are pretty much are the same color regardless of year with a few exceptions. I Haven't seen any other colors for that circuit in what I have.
