Default 85 Camry installing new carstereo

Want to replace radio cassette player. Have problems finding a wire harness
for 85 model, only seen harness for 1988 upwards. Don't want to cut cables.
Found a wiring diagram for 85 model and unfortunately the the wire colours
are not the same as mine. Not sure which wire is +12volt ignition or +12
volt battery wire. Any tips.

Those 2 are easy to find with a volt meter.

Wow. Let me know what a chore this is. I was going to put one in my Mom's
'86 but it doesn't look like a standard opening...

I was able to find a wiring harness kit for pre-87 Toyotas at
Wal-Mart. Actually the harness has both pre-87 and 87 & up in one
kit. I looked at all other stores and Wal-Mart was the only one with
it. I believe it's only about $9 too.

I paid $6 at Wally World. Yeah, two harnesses in one...pre-1988 and
post-1988. You can also use it to hook a newer Toyota OEM radio into an
older Yota!

That's not fair. We don't have a Wally World around here.

HAHA! Do a search on Wall-Mart and Greenfield! There is a local guy named
Al Norman who is making it his life's work to keep wal-mart as down as he
can. The people (crunchies?) in Greenfield voted it out, and then allowed
a Home Depot, when there were already 3 home improvement centers in town
already! Now, there is only a locally owned dept store in Greenfield, with
good stuff but HIGH prices.
