This post is for reference information only, not a for sale ad. So I've been going thru my stash of NOS Mopar parts and I came across these two sets of key lock cylinders complete with keys. One is a 3 pack and the other is a 5 pack. As you can see in the pictures, these would work for the 1968 thru 1977 vans, not the 1967 or earlier year. I wanted to post the pictures so that you know what to look for if you happen to come across them via ebay or maybe a swap meet. From what I understand, lock cylinders work for 1964 thru 1967 models and then changed in 1968.

now for ALL van owners regardless of the years. here is a quick tip. you notice the stainless metal cover that has 4 clips to the body of the lock cylinders. under that cover is a spring and usually a 2 part tumbler. if you have a spare lock and no key you can pop that cover off and remove all or some of the tumblers. the 2 part tumbler pins are what determines the key cut. but if all or some are removed the door will still lock and the vehicle will start. the downside any dodge key might open a door and start the vehicle. if you tell more than one person nobody will be the wiser. but to let you know the key can be removed at any spot in the turning radius so if you unlock the door and pull the key out without centering it a sharp eye can tell it's possible any key will unlock a door. remember there are only 5 tumbler depths and 5 locations in the key barrel. the combos are just that limited hence the newer keys having double cut keys. I have done many with one or two tumbler holes with nothing in them and some with just one. it's not rocket science. just don't mix up the tumbler pieces, the springs are thhe same. try it...
