Installing an aftermarket radio

Hello everyone, I am having some power issues upon installing an aftermarket radio into my 1971 Plymouth Fury. I was able to get the old radio out but the car has only a single wire for constant and an ignition power.

I tried just wrapping and taping the new radios ignition and constant power wires to this but it causes the radio to be connected to dome light power and whatnot. (Ex. radio only turns on when door is open, close door radio will turn off with lights, and turning headlights on will cause radio to reset.)
I was told that I should try just connecting the ignition wire to the connection showed in picture, and get more wire in order to run the constant directly into the battery. Any ideas?
