Key Blanks NLA??? + Folding keys


johns1974

Recommended Posts

I went to 3 hardware stores and then to the BMW Dealer in Calabasas and they said that they can't get key blanks for my '74...

The dealer suggested I buy a whole new ignition because that comes with a key... Yeah, I'll get right on that...

My car has one of those wacky folding keys and if it breaks, I'm doomed. Any thoughts on where to get a new blank so I can get some copies cut? TIA...

BTW... Anyone know the history of the folding key? Why was that made? What's it for? What's the benefit? TIA!

I tried to get a folding key last year. Apparently BMWNA has 4 in stock (in the system anyway) but ain't letting go of them. Pulling strings did not work either.

Regular Huf blanks are occasionally on Ebay, and I think a few vendors have them also.

Edit: like, here:

Edit: buy from BLUNT ;-)

... I bought a cool folding key off Ebay last year. It was custom made from an original, but the head is silver, not plastic. It's cool, man!

I was told that folding keys were carried over from the motorcycles. When you use one on a motorcycle ignition, the rest of your keys hang nicely instead of sticking way out. Once BMW changed the ignition location, the folding key was no longer necessary. So I'm told.....

I was pleasantly surprised that my local locksmith had the Silca blanks for both ignition/doors and trunk locks right up on the wall under BMW... I had 2 sets made for less than 15 bucks. This was in Herndon, VA.

to protect your knee in case of a collision.

That's the spirit, JMcW -- what, am I rubbing off on you? We can't let that happen. It's a slippery slope -- next thing we know, you'll be posting up nekked roller skating pictures.

BLUNT - I might want one. I'll email you offline.

Blunt,

Do you have a photo of what the Dealer keys used to look like.

This is what I have. They say Huff on them. I don't know if these are what the Tii came with but, if you have the originals I would like a set of blanks please.

If you are for sure going to Windy fest, I'll pick them up there. If not, you know how to get a hold of me.

As always, Thanks again for the real deal Blunt.

Got to go, I hear the tone going off and the Coast Guard copter is in the air. Some tourist must of thrown his wife overboard or hit the pier with his boat.

We lose at least two a summer on the water and at least two a year on Silver Lake Sand Dunes….. See ya. Sorry have to go…..

Those are most likely originals since they are stamped with the tumbler codes.

Cheers,

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
