Locksmith needed!
 

I have removed the entire spare tire and mounting bracket from my 35 coupe. I need an old school locksmith to remove the spare tire from the mounting bracket and make a key for the lock. My local locksmith was of no help. My physical location is in Beaufort, SC. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I will be attending the Barners Bash in Florida at the end of February and can also bring this with me.

I know a locksmith here in Irmo that could probably do it. He cut a new door key for my '40 by feel.

If the lock is not broken a good locksmith can pick it open and then make a new key to fit. Not cheap but, very worth while.

I've been down the same road.I found an old school locksmith that could make a key by "impression" but the problem was finding a blank.It has to be the correct length, height,width and have the grooves in the right places.Mac's sells them for $6 each.My advice would be to order a few blanks first and find a good locksmith second.Ford spare locks were made by Hurd from 1932-1948(so says the Mac's catalog). If you know some 32-48 owners nearby,you might try their key.There wasn't all that many patterns in those years. My friends 64 Corvette door key would unlock my 55 Chevy truck.No,I didn't steal his car.
