    Has anyone re-keyed the door locks? Local locksmith doesn't know how to open them up. Youngsters these days! Any advice? Thanks JT

    Yes. I had the locksmith in Marshall do it for me.

      If there is no visible lock to depress do this:

      So I did this and took the cylinders to my lock smith to rekey to my ignition key. He did the job and I asked how much he said: "Nothing, you did all the work". His shop has been there forever but he has no manuals to cover Studebaker locks.

        Thanks much to Pete Yuen for creating that special cylinder removal help for the '63 to '66 Door Locks with the built-in Dust/Water Doors!

          check to see if there is a way to just dump out what they call the wafers and then any key will work. Save? Yes if you don't tell anyone what you did no one will know.

            The locksmith (old school) said the ignition key was the same as "an old Dodge key" did not specify a year - check same years as Stude's ((1955-'65).
