The ignition switch in my 65 pops right out when I turn the key to "on" or "start". While the car is running, I can pull the key and cylinder right out of the outer chrome housing and the car keeps running. I have been told that there is some kind of pin that actually holds the cylinder in. Is this true? Can this be fixed? I don't really want to replace the cylinder because then I'll have to replace the door cylinders to have matching door and ignition keys.

Sonds like I am right behind you. Don't fret, you can buy a new cylinder, and take it to a locksmith and have it re-keyed to your old key!

Good luck...

Yup, the old cylinder is just getting tired, time to buy a new one & have it re-keyed. Cylinder is about $10, and another $10 to have it re-keyed.
