    the real Schmidty

    1955 Chevy DelRay. Does anybody have information on how to remove the ignition without a key?

    Welcome to the site, schmidty.

    You need a key unless you're willing to destroy the lock cylinder by drilling the center out.

    Easiest way is to find an old locksmith who may have a master key or one that fits. Next thing would be to get a key code from a door lock and have one made.

    Once you have a key follow the instructions in the shop manual. Key in lock in off position, insert a paper clip in the hole in the lock cylinder, turn CCW and it will come out.
