It is a gorgeous day today, I drove my 63 Cab? to breakfast. I got in it to go to work and the key wouldn't fit in the ignition. I got a ride back and brought three spare keys and some triflow, didn't help. I called Tom Funk at 356 Works and he had Paul call me back. Paul taught me how to hotwire it which got me home.
Any ideas of home fixes or should I just decide who to send it to since Tony already has had my 52 igniton and speedster doors and ignition about 5 years.
I have a new ignition but it has screws instead of bullet receptors.

Mark, there are at least two other vendors doing keys and switches. Check the vendor list plus Dick Weiss in Cincy has the expertise to repair the switches but no sure if he works on the tumblers.

A local locksmith (who cuts keys when needed) can do tumbler work, too.
