Re: Oakes locks, 1931 826.

The wheel locks on my '29 633 are definitely smaller than the ones shown in the photos by Gary and their backside is entirely different. Mine are not keyed to match the passenger's door and I had no keys for them when I got the car. Much to my surprise, the locks themselves were pretty much shot and I opened them with a small screwdriver but couldn't get them to lock back again. One of the locks has imcomplete guts to make matters worse. Brought them to two local locksmiths, they won't attempt to rebuid or re-key the wheel locks, so, they've been off the car ever since!

It's ridiculous, you can't get anybody to work on anything old anymore.
