    I'm pretty sure the two are keyed alike in 70. (Door and ignition)
    Someone else more familiar with the early 2nd gens will need to confirm.

    Getting the door lock cylinder out is pretty easy, it just takes some creativity in tool fabrication and usage.
    Getting it reassembled (with the window and door panel in place) IS kind of tricky but I've done it before. ;)

    Call a lock smith and talk to them.
    The service call is probably worth the money if you can avoid tearing into your door or steering column.

    Never did find keys...............................

    I've "lost" the keys to my Red 70 SS/RS. Is it better easier to remove the column cylinder
    and take to lock shop...............OR is better to remove the Door Lock......

    Does Door Lock have a stamped code.....OR how does lock shop make a replacement
    key............


    Glove box door is NOT locked, so can that lock be removed and Code found ???
