Re: Making Keys For The 60 -66 Chevy Trucks

Thanks for info about the #'s stamped into the lock cylinder. LocDoc, are there different pins or wafers for the door cylinders that are more pick proof? I seem to remember reading in a locksmithing book about it. How hard would it be to key 3 lock cylinders alike for our panels or suburbans? Thx.......Dog

GM has used the Briggs & Stratton side bar lock since 1935 and because of it's design it is almost impossible to pick.

It's pretty easy to key the lock cylinders the same on the '60-'66 GM trucks.

Re: Making Keys For The 60 -66 Chevy Trucks

If you can, whats the cost of re-keying a Suburban tailgate lock to match the front doors? I replaced my tailgate lock on my 65 about a year ago with a new lock, but have a seperate key for it. It's a Briggs key. I'm trying to get down to just a few keys on my ring.
Thanks

It would run about 10 bucks plus shipping back to you.

Re: Making Keys For The 60 -66 Chevy Trucks

Could I get the code off my original ignition cylinder and have a key made, my 62 didn't have a key with it when I bought it, and I bought a new cylinder but I'd like to keep the original in it

Thanks LockDoc
I'll try to get my back door and 2 front door locks to you after the first of the year when everything settles down after the holidays. I need the fronts re-done as I'm still using the ORIGINAL key and it's pretty well worn.

So do you match locks with keys? Over time I've managed to get everything mixed and would like it all to work with 1 key again.
