The '65-'66 Door, Ignition and Trunk key locks are all single slot, single sided keys.. '67-'70 are all "Double-Sided" and "Reversible".
The '67-'68 Ignition is considerably bigger diameter than the '65-'66 so it will be interesting to see your pics to see what someone did...for whatever reason....and don't forget to show us a pic of the trunk lock too.. I'm sure that area will be just as interesting...
I really wanted to have the correct set of "pony keys".
Right now the car has 3 different keys. 1 for the doors, 1 for the ignition and another for the trunk.
Only the doors are double sided (67 style) thank god. Before I did the door locks, I did the ignition switch and had no problems. I'm waiting to get a blank for the trunk key, and i'm just going to get a locksmith to rekey it to a pony key blank.
I'm baffled at some of the irreversible choices the PO has made and I hate finding them out as I go. This door lock thing really sucks
Since the rest of the keys aren't a hack job, I will try and entertain you with some of his/her other work. Luckily some stuff can easily be taken care of.
First, Betty as she sits now - still far from what I want her to be
Hacked up dash - I don't get it, if you're already cutting it, why cut it this way?? I really have no words.
Random hole in the right door only. Towards the front. What the hell for ... a speaker? Maybe he had it on the other door also and replaced the door at some point. Still why??
Here you can see they painted the entire gauge cluster black with a shiny black paint. Fine, you like black...cool - but then why would you paint the glove box door, with the same paint - BUT take the time to mask and leave the chrome accents ... I don't have a pic of it, but it really doesn't make sense.
Also, notice the missing door trim on the pony interior. You spent a ton of money getting most of it right...why not go all the way
At least these are easy fixes.
Some other stupid stuff -
- Shaved the front hubs down in some spots, possibly to fit some sort of aftermarket wheels.
- Completely butchered the rear speaker holes. Will have to mount speakers on top of the package tray now.
- Power steering ram hitting the header. Thank god they didn't attempt any "fabrication" around there.
- Cut a hole on the side of the console for a switch - At first I thought it was a kill switch or a provision for an electric fan. No no no. Why would I expect something reasonable like that at this point given their pedigree...It's actually a switch to turn the rear console lights on and off. Yes, they went through the effort to wire this up, and cut the console to add this incredible feature.
I love this car, and I'm enjoying learning about it by fixing all this crap, but I just can't believe some people's thought process and I hate days like today.
Hope at least you can have some laughs at my expense
