    I have a 31' Sport Coupe. I need door keys. Does any vendor sell the lug or how do I go about having keys made?

    Most vendors sell key blanks. If you have a good local locksmith, you should take the car over and let him have a look. You may have to remove the door handle so he can make the new key.

        I'll try Dick. I don't need the ignition pop-out key just the door and rumble key.
        Thanks, Phil

            Don't have the JS in front of me but I believe the door key and Pop-Out keys are the same on '31's. MY son's '31Slant TS Pop-Out and door key are the same.

              I went to a local locksmith. They made three keys for $10.00.

                I want to put keyed locks on both doors of my pickup, and would like to have them keyed alike.

                Has anyone had any success in doing that?

                  Go see your local locksmith. I used to have two rental houses and had the lock rekeyed ever few years as tenants changes. it is NOT rocket science. Might have some issues finding the right blank.

                Outside door handle locking mechanism froze up
                by JD-OHIO
                '31 Town Sedan outside locking door handle. I took it to a local locksmith and he determined that the insides were corroded enough that he could not get the key mechanism to turn or be able to insert a key in it. So he said there was no use trying to make a key for it. Any ideas on how to save it so a key could be made and I could then be able to lock the car ? The handle itself looks great and works...

                Key cylinder is seized in the handle
                by EarlyBert
                Good day all. I am new to the Model A lifestyle. I recently purchased a 1928 AR Tudor that was, for the most part, restored. One issue I am trying to address is the key cylinder in the passenger door handle is seized in the handle. I made a key for it & the tumblers are free but the plug won't turn.
                I shot it with PB Blaster a couple times a day for many days, I soaked it overnight in Coca...

                I did ask on another thread but thought I should start a new topic. How does the ignition switch cable head apart to rebuild replace the key door and obtain key codes etc?

                by Travelair 3000
                I have a 31 Roadster and am missing the key for the rumple seat lid handle. The number on the lock is CH 751. Is this familiar to anyone, and can a key be made using this number by a locksmith?

                My driveshaft key has a FORD script on each end, and a star in the center of the key.
                Does anyone know the significance of the star? Thanks

                Exterior door locks on a 47 ford
                by Silent Thunder
                I have two styles to choose from, one has the flap to keep water out internally and the other has an external flap that swings away. Which style door lock is correct for 47 Super Deluxe? Also when I bought a new trunk handle and lock the key way is not the same as the glove box which I thought it was suppose to share with? It matches the exterior door locks? What gives?
