I have lost the keys to our 1970 ford mustang. What do we need to do in order to get a replacement key? Thanks

Any good locksmith can make you a key without removing he locks, this could be expensive. The other options is to just buy a new lock set with keys, not that expensive. The only trouble I see with the latter may be removing the cylinder from the column without the key.

If you door and ignition use the same key, pop the door lock and take it to a locksmith. They are fairly easy to take out. Trunk lock is even easier to take out but I'm assuming it's locked or use a different key than the rest.

Trunk locks are different than the ignition switch key. The door locks ''should'' be the same...

Get a new blank key from a locksmith and check out that thread >>> Removing ignition cylinder on 1970 .......

Once the cylinder is out your locksmith can cut 2-3 keys in a jiffy.

Got any other old Fords there or around..Like starting in 69 up to probably about the 90's. Long shot but you may have one that might work from another car..

On my Hudson I needed keys made, I just took a door cylinder down to them and they made me a set of keys for $35.00. That included rekeying the trunk lock to use the same key.

Are you sure its your car? If thats the case, I've lost thousandths of keys

Okay, Call the locksmith to unlock your car first (he needs proof first). Read up your ford service manual and replace it, or have someone else replace it. There cheap to buy

OP's first post here, so color me skeptical too. Apologies in advance if I'm wrong.

Thankfully we don't have modern-car problems. Like keyless entry & exit.

My buddies '73 Torino ignition key unlocked his dad's '79 F150 and his dads door keys started his Torino.

Don't these cars have a button or knob inside to manually lock/unlock the doors?

To remove the ignition cylinder you need a working key to turn ignition cylinder to the RUN position. So that option is unavailable.

I don't feel comfortable explaining how to access these cars with out the proper key, although there is a rather simple way.

Each door has an emergency pull-lever on the floor.

This lever does more than unlock the door. Pulling it manually opens the door.

This design is necessary because the C6 doors are normally activated electrically. Touchpad outside, pushbutton inside -- but obviously they don't work if the battery's dead.

Ironically, if you're locked-out with a dead battery, this "keyless" system uses an old-fashioned metal key to get in.

The system also integrates with keyless start... ridiculously complicated for a minor convenience. Known problems too... some are expensive not DIY (for example google "RCDLR").

I mention all this because, sadly, all 2015+ Mustangs have keyless entry and keyless start.

Just another reason I'm keeping my '66 FB.
