Hi, the 66 coupe I bought as a project car, did not come with any keys. I was wondering if there is anyway to take out the ignition cylinder, without drilling it out. Thank you in advanced.

I ended up drilling. If you do drill take this advice. Remove the little nut and wiring connector from the back of the switch before you drill. Why you ask. Well I can say with 100% accuracy that it's possible for the switch to suddenly break loose while your drilling and it can also spin like crazy while your underdash harness winds up in a coil. I was lucky I didn't break any wires. But it sure freaked me out.

That only works if you have the key and can insert it into the cylinder lock. Without the key, drilling appears to be the only way.
