I think the radio is behind the dash. There are on line parts businesses that will sell you an exact dimensionally sized radio that you can put right in without any modifications. Just go to 1972 Chevy Nova Parts and search. I personally don't do e-bay, even though a lot of people swear by it. My money is too hard earned by me to gamble on getting something from an unknown person that I can't see beforehand. Me personal opinion only.
