65' Falcon Virgin Radio Install

Hello everyone first off thank you in advance for any input. I am instalying a radio in my falcon, this car has never had a radio so no wiring harness, no fuse box. I recently ordered a new glove box (original crumbled into pieces) and made a bracket so that I could install the radio in the glove box and still have room for some other things. I will post pics. My ? Is where should I run the accessory wire (wire that turns radio on when you turn key) to from the radio? I was thinking to tap it into the back of the key ignition switch, would that work? Is there another way? I was also going to run the other power wire to the battery. Thanks again!

Thanks it worked just fine I hooked up to the back of the ignition switch for the power and the lighter wire that wasn't being used.

So I replaced the glove box (crumbled in my hands) and made a bracket to hang the new pioneer short chassis radio. Also added a usb/aux plug to fill the hole where the lighter used to be.
