1955 Flying Cloud Lock Question

I purchased a 1955 Flying Cloud and it did not come with any keys. I'm hoping that someone knows what key blank is required for the pictured lock. I want to make sure the locksmith has the key blank in stock before I haul the trailer to him. Any help is appreciated. Pictures are always helpful.

It will be much easier if you take the lock out of the door. I had the same problem and I talked to the locksmith first and he said the only way to know was to bring it in and if he did not have a blank in stock he could get it. I removed the lock from the door on my '56 overlander whick is the same as yours and took just the door handle/lock to the locksmith. He had the blanks although, they did not look like the originals, they work just fine. I got him to make four copies for me and I reinstalled the lock. It took about half a day but my trailer is 14 miles from the locksmith so the travel killed some time.

be happy to answer questions if you want to try.

This locksmith is one of the largest and oldest in the area so I may just take the chance and drive the whole she-bang down there. It's only about a 12 mile round trip.

True

My locksmith (with lots of inventory) tells me the same. "Bring me the lock cylinder and we'll have a key, no problem."

It beats towing the whole beast downtown.

Ok, this is good advice. When I have it apart, I'll add the missing handle spring which has been bugging me anyway.

I don't recognize any of these 50s parts. It's like, I don't even know you anymore, Barry...

Marcus, Marcus.....
When you heading up this way? I feel as though I owe you a beer or 10. I'll still be interested in your progress. The early 60's trailers are beautiful and what you are doing is extra special.
