220s ignition barrel/ assembly

Post by Stevenbagshaw1 » Wed 08 Mar, 2017 9:15 pm

Hi, I am in need of a replacement ignition lock assembly for my 1959 220s. I bought the car several months ago and it had been sitting in a garage in Punchbowl, Sydney for at least 32 years and sadly the key(s) have been lost in the passing of time. Thomas Hanson in California kindly tracked down the data sheet for the car and arranged for a key to be cut in Germany using the supplied key number. Alas it did not operate the lock even after some gentle filing to compensate for lock ware.
It seems the only avenue now is to replace the entire lock. If anyone has or knows of one for sale please let me know.
