Default 1950 F3 Ignition switch and door lock

Is there anywhere I can get original replacement ignition switch and door lock? My ignition switch I'm pretty sure is not original and I have no idea where the door lock key is anymore.

There are repro key sets out there, usual chinese. But they work. If you can get your door lock cylinder out, a locksmith can make a key to fit if you give him a blank.

I think 32phil on this site can key the door lock.

The problem on trucks is getting the door lock cylinder out. It's retained by an Allen-head setscrew almost an inch long, and they rarely come out without a fight.

Hmmm, that doesn't sound fun... So far, almost every bolt I have tried on this has come with minimal effort so I am hoping my luck is on my side. Does anyone have any pictures of this area? I haven't dug into it yet. It might wait a while.

If 32Phil has already returned to Florida for the winter, I can help you out with whatever you need. I have OEM switches, ignition lock cylinders, and door locks for 49-53 available.

Thanks, I haven't had time to get back to this for a while. Hopefully I can after the holidays. I'm pretty sure the ignition switch is something Aftermarket because it has a start position. Would like to replace the whole thing with OEM. I'll get the lock out one of these days and reach out again.
