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.

Re: Making Keys For The 60 -66 Chevy Trucks

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.

Yes, either the door lock/locks can be re-keyed or the ignition lock can be re-keyed to match the other.

Re: Making Keys For The 60 -66 Chevy Trucks

Wanted to post in this thread....Mr Leon rebuilt my door locks and re-keyed a glove box lock for me. He also cut me 2 keys from original blanks. If you are considering having this done I would highly suggest using Mr, Leon.....He did an awesome job for me, quickly and everything works perfectly. I really appreciate it a lot Mr Leon.

Do you have a key for either of the locks? If you have a key for one of them all I would need is the key and the lock that needs to be changed. To re-key one lock would be $12.50US + postage back to you. Postage is higher to Canada from the US.

Thanks,
LockDoc

Re: Making Keys For The 60 -66 Chevy Trucks

I have a '63 C10...the door and glove compartment are one key and the ignition is a separate key. Was my truck a one key or two key originally?

One key would have fit all of the locks from the factory. I'm betting someone changed the ignition cylinder. I can re-key the ignition to match the door and glove box if you ever decide to go that way.

thank you Leon...I would like to re-key the ignition cylinder. I am going to try to find a extra cylinder to send to you so I can keep this one. I'll get in touch with you when I find a extra one.

Which style cylinder is in your truck the flat one or the one with ears?

Re: Making Keys For The 60 -66 Chevy Trucks

My ignition cylinder and door lock are both worn out and can be turned with a screwdriver without any effort. Can you rebuild them...also if I wanted a door lock on the passenger side, do you have any cylinders that can be put in there? PM me an estimate or answer here and we can get the ball rolling. Thanks!

Yes, I can rebuild the cylinders if they are not damaged on the inside from using a screwdriver on them.

Pictures of 2 different styles of OEM GM Octagon head key blanks. The first one is the older style with the code knockout, manufactured from 1935 - 1966 (to early '68 for trucks). The second picture is the later manufactured blank with no code knockout in place. They are still being manufactured today.
