1961 Comet Questions

Post #1 by Hudson Nut » Sun Nov 06, 2011 8:52 pm

We recently purchased a 61 Comet 2 door, we received no keys and was wondering if the glove box ,doors, trunk, were keyed the same as the ignition?
This is our first Ford inline six, so I am sure we will have lots of questions.
Are there any suppliers of presewn factory style seat covers for the Comets? Are Falcon seat covers the same?
Are there websites where we can decode the serial plate? (Body-62A, Color-M, Trim-76, Date-28L, Trans-3, Axle-J)
Lets start with these questions, Thanks for your help.

There are two keys. The ignition key is different from the door and trunk key. I cant remember for certain, but I believe the glove box uses the door and trunk key.

You can get new lock and key sets with replacement cylinders for all of these items. They are actually quite easy to replace compared to the locks of today's cars.
