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.

I believe the locks themselves are identical on all from 1928-1930. As I said, it's the covers that are different (you don't need the covers, as far as I know). It's also the locks, not the covers, that are really hard to find. I would buy the set that Gary has for sale. They DO NOT come up for sale very often, especially with keys and working properly.
