1961 Pontiac laurentian ignition switch


My 61 is missing all its keys . Is there a source for all the outside lock cylinders including the trunk . Also I got the ignition switch out it's a 1116590 switch I believe, I would like to save the switch is there a way to get the cylinder out with out keys and is there a replacement cylinder available?

 TAKE THE DOOR LOCK TO A LOCK SMITH AND HAVE A KEY MADE 

DID THAT A FEW TIMES, KEEP YOUR ORIGINAL LOCKS.

If you have an owners manual the codes may have been noted in the manual

It's too bad you are in Ontario. If you were in Manitoba I could certainly help you out. As stated though, there's a good possibility one of the door lock cylinders has the code stamped on it. It would be a four digit code. If you can find that stamped on a door lock a locksmith will cut you keys.

Oh and the same goes for the trunk lock cylinder. It may have the code stamped on it.

Not sure about your 61, but for my 57 Chevy, I drove the car to a locksmith. He popped the ignition cylinder out, looked at the code on the side of the cylinder, and cut me new keys. The whole process took about 5 minutes as he had the Briggs & Stratton keys in stock.

Are you near Clinton, Ontario home of 427 Carl.

There is a locksmith that specializes in our old stuff.

If you can find some older GM keys you may be able to find one close enough to get the ignition lock cylinder out. If you can get the ignition to turn to the left insert a pin in the hole and turn left a bit more and the lock cylinder should pull out.

Would the code stamped on the ignition cylinder be the code for cutting a new key just curious

Thank you guys for all the info sure enough I looked in the glove box and it still had its owners protection policy hand book and written right on the cover was the key codes for the ignition and the trunk. I had already drilled the trunk lock out being inpatient a few weeks ago should have asked around before I did that lol.
