Carefully look at the accessory wires comoing off the battery terminals. Sometimes these corrode inside the terminals and insulation where you can't easily see it. Check to see if you have voltage at the fuse. Then check if you have voltage at the connector to the radio. A Bentley's Manual will have all the color codes and wiring diagrams you need. All the electrical connections on the old cars are suspect and my guess is that's your problem.
