1939 Cadillac LaSalle Coup

Duplicate Key Blanks for a 1935 Buick Special

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen,

I just bought a 1935 Buick Special 46C.  It's a beautiful car.  But I only have one set of keys and want to make

a spare set.  The local hardware store guys look at me with crossed eyes when I ask for a key blank for a car 

this old.  Does anyone have any suggestions for finding key blanks for this car.  

Thanks in advance.

John P.

The 293 is a code.

Key number B1198C ?

CH 545 a code 

are there any other markings on keys or what they fit on the car.

Interesting, as 1935 is the first year for the famous Briggs and Stratton B-10 blank series. I guess yours is a hold over from the previous year.

Surprised there is a difference.

 

Then back to the local hardware store.
