W123 radio wiring

I have recently acquired a 1984 230E, nice example, 44,000 miles.

I have installed a more modern cd/radio using some bare wires which were already in the aperture, however I cannot identify an "always on" power supply so I have linked it to the "Ignition on" power supply. Just means that I lose my settings when the car is turned off. There is a red/white lead which I assume is to activate an electric aerial, which is no longer fitted.

Whilst in there I noticed a black plastic block connector with 8 pin holes, 6 of which have actual terminals inside them. Is this an OE radio wiring loom or something to do with diagnostics? If it is for the radio is there any chance of getting a matching male connector or would it just have plugged into the back of a radio?

Thanks for any help.
