Fiat 124 Locksets

Postby BT124 » Tue Jul 16, 2013 12:23 pm

Hi, I just bought a very rough 1979 spider. I needn't a rainy day project for the 11 1/2 months a year that it rains in Portland! Anyway I need a lockset for trunk and doors. The key I have now barely works in the trunk and not in doors at all. Any ideas?

Also, what are best sources for parts? Vick or IAP? Or other.
Thanks

... and if anyone has another set lying around - I'd love to talk! 1976, with sticky out handles :)

If you remove the locks and take them to a locksmith they should be able to make a key and key them all the same.
Likely less money than buying a new lock set, which we do carry (could likely even key it to be the same as one of our trunk locks).

Good idea Csaba... it will be a novelty to have functioning door locks - not that they make much difference when the roof is down :)
