1966 Mustang Hardtop 289 4 Speed
I mentioned in @Turnall thread that I lost or misplaced the only ignition key. The missus and I searched high and low but no luck finding it. Anyway I ordered a replacement set of tumblers and keys from Virginia Mustang just in case I don't find it. I just wanted to let folks know NOT to drill out their old tumbler if they are faced with the a similar circumstance. I was able to pick the lock and turn it to the accessory position to pull it out. I made a pick with a hair pin and used a small flat blade screw driver to rotate the cylinder. I inserted the screw driver tip just enough to put a little tension on the tumbler and used the hair pin to try to gently lift each pin until the tumbler turned. Took about 5 minutes to get it out without having to drill it out. I have a blank Mustang key, only wish I'd taken a picture of the original key. I would have had a good chance to cut it myself.
