    Two little male pins on a bakelite strip. One pin larger than the other. High tech for back then.

    On the speaker wires there is a plastic piece with two metal prongs sticking out (male X 2).
    On the radio there is a place where that plugs in (female X 2).
    These kinds of group male/female connections are common in electrical. Those of us in the trade are not responsible for the kinky things we have to work with.

    It can vary by radio manufacture but the spot you plug in the two pins is normally directly on the rear of the unit, close to the antenna cable receptacle. Don't have one out for a photo, sorry.

    Short of luckily finding one in an older car, I would hunt for an established radio or TV repair shop who has been in business for decades. Maybe look in "Hemmings" magazine for a dedicated older radio repair shop.
