38-A46154-928-A-4-FD3-B7-B6-30-BA0-A5-BBE6-F.jpgHi all,  We are very excited that our 73 mustang arrived from california today.

 

The car has arrived in tiptop condition, however the key will not come out of the ignition and the ignition barrel will not turn all the way to the lock position.   Is this common and any help would be appreciated as it has stumped us all in how to remove the key.  The car is at the mechanics to get the roadworthy and even they cant seem to get it out at this stage.

Welcome from northern California.

You can remove the steering wheel and

access the lock. But wait for expert advice.

There is a lock out rod on the steering column by the firewall, it is a safety feature

If the car is an automatic transmission it must be adjusted so the car is in PARK to turn and remove the key

If the car is a 3 or 4 speed manual it must be in reverse in order to remove the key

Welcome to the forum and glad the car made it safe. Don is right on the lock rod adjustment.

I have several 72 & 73.

Nice car, sometimes I have to put in park and turn the wheel a little to get key out. Good luck, all old cars have their quirks

Welcome from west Michigan.

To piggyback on what Don said, if there is no rod attached to the lever move it in the upwards direction.

That seemed reasonably painless ?  Glad it arrived unscathed.  Let's know if I can help at all.  From Mackay, Qld.
