Keys....

Recommended Posts

My GT6 keys are rough. The ignition key is very rough.  Helpfully (not!) a PO has cut most of the tab off including any code that may have been there.

It is for the usual GT6 mk 3 / Spit IV / early Spit 1500 column lock. Presumably WASO. Single sided key, Fairly short.

If I knew the prefix letters I could get a blank and get it cut locally.....

 Any ideas?

There's normally a number stamped on the lock assy.

Hi Nick

If it’s similar to the Waso TR6 column lock it will be the FR series.

If you can’t get hold of one, let me know as I may have some FR blanks among the many blanks I’ve got left.

Cheers Kev.

NIck, if you can find the number, you could either talk to the Club Triumph shopkeepers, Andy and Tina Lacey or speak to Dave P at Canleys.

Chris reminded me he had already sorted key blanks as they are same as his Spitfire...…..  Doh!  Senile old fool.  Just got to get them cut now.

Reminds me of the 2005 CT 10CR, being one of 3 grey mk1 Saloons, we all had the same keys for our cars....bit of a shocker at the time: James Shackford, Craig Gingell and me, think James Carruther's mk1 had the same as well......crikey!

My mum was once asked for the loan of her copy of the "Ford key" in Yeovil Tescos car park as the lady in the next space had locked her keys in her Escort.  The Cortina key opened it no bother.

I was once called down to the car deck on a cross channel ferry to see whether my Audi key (1987 Audi 90 at the time) would open the boot of the 1992 Audi 80 convertible parked in front of it as the owners had just shut their keys in the boot.  Somewhat to all our surprise it did...... they didn't know whether to be relieved or alarmed!  I wasn't allowed to check whether it fitted any other locks on their car.

My first car was a 1963 herald 1200 in about 1980. I needed a spare key so went to a local car spares shop. The owner new I had an old herald since I bought parts there. I said I needed a key and went to pass him the original. He stopped me with 'What year is it?" then "What color?" ....."Ahh" he said ...."FS913" (from memory) and passed me a correct key from the board.

I remember when we were at school a few of my friends had Metros, the keys on those were reasonably interchangeable i.e. with a bit of jiggling you could unlock and start other Metros without much effort (and then park them in a different street etc. and other such related high jinks) :)

Need to get some new locks and keys for the project car, think a tea spoon handle would start this one.
