Tried to get duplicate keys made for my 66 mustang at the local Home Depot. Even though I had the blanks, they claimed they did not have the right key cartridge. All the Ford cartriges were for double sided keys.

Any recommmendations?

I just got a set made at Lowes today for my 68, they didn't bat an eye at the Ford keys, and my new keys work perfect. Good Luck. Dave.

I use a regular locksmith, never had a problem.
I use a locksmith also. At $3.00 a pop plus shipping, I don't think I will trust the guy at the local Home Cheapo to cut it.

Lock smith, order key blanks from a parts house, try the ford dealer, not an uncommon keyblank

I had mine done at Home Depot using the Fomoco style blanks and they work great! I also hada key amde up at Walmart just for fun and it came out great too!

I got some cut at Carlisle by a vendor that is there every year who has blanks that match the factory original keys. I forget what he charged but he was pretty reasonable, got 3 sets made.

I'm guessing that person did not know what they were doing. I've had several sets of Mustang keys made at my local Home Depot with no problems (Yes, I provided the blanks) Find some place else to make them for you.

Well they were double sided after 1967! I got my blanks from NPD and had the local Ace cut them for me. They work like a charm.

Will the double sided '67 and up keys fit an earlier model? I mean the whole kit with cylinder, not just the keys. I've seen where they are making single key kits for the '67 up models - one key fits the doors, ignition and trunk.

if you have an issue you can send me the keys & the blanks along with a SASE, I will cut them for you & send the m back. I have a key machine at work & have cut all my keys with no trouble.
or if your in westchester county, contact me & I can do it for you while you wait

LOL, used to love those single sided keys, I can remember two Falcons my dad used to own that they were so worn you could remove the key once the car was started.


I think any of the Mustang parts houses would have a repo single sided key blank for the 65-66
