    Dear Friends,

    I have just bought a 1978 308 GTS and the transportation Cia. that I hired LOST the keys for the car
    Now the car is in my driveway with the steering wheel locked and I have no keys!
    So I wonder what to do now and have a few questions :
    1-) It's possible to make theses keys to match my ignition lock system and doors?
    2-) Is the door the same key for the ignition ?
    3-) Does any body know where I can find a locksmith to make theses keys ( I'm in Fort Lauderdale) but any where in USA is a start
    4-) How do I remove the ignition lock system If needed?

    Thank you all for the help

    Ricardo

    Have you checked the car thoroughly.
    Truck drivers have a habit of hiding keys under sun visors, door pockets, consoles, under seats, even hidden in the boots of cars.

    You give your local Ferrari dealership a copy of your title, VIN number, and driver's license and they can make you up a set of keys.

    Any competent locksmith with the correct blanks can make keys. They'll make the door key first. If it works in the ignition, they are done. If not, pay them for 2 key cuts. Probable about $100, cheaper than the Ferrari dealership route.

    Correct blanks can be sourced from eBay.

    Ferrari 308 KEY BLANK SET. Ignition AND Door/Gas keys. 308GTS 308GTB

    The seller is obertro. They’re nice keys. I bought a set as an extra for just such an issue.

    On my '84 QV it is a different key for the door compared to the ignition. Totally different type of key :)

    Yes... door and ignition are different keys however I believe both are made by a company called ILCO and believe it or not your basic Ace Hardware carries it

    I don't think the dealer can cut a key from a VIN number from that old a Vintage

    I had some door keys made for my ‘69 Alfa Spider. Bought correct ilco blanks. Took out lock mechanism and left it with the locksmith as it requires some trial and error to get it right. From memory he had to disassemble the tumblers to determine cuts. A week later picked up keys and they worked perfectly.

    Oh boy..they need to FIND them, you are in the hurt locker, now.

    Door key as above is the least of your worries.
    The ignition key is different.

    Extra set at sellers house maybe?

    I had a locksmith "feel the pins" and make a key, but he ruined the lock doing it.

    MAYBE if you had the Books the dealer wrote the key codes in the Warranty Coupon Book.
    Look there?

    This is really terrible, but as you can tell I lost the "only keys" once and had to work thru it all.

    I ended up pulling the ignition switch entirely and getting it to a local Safe and Lock company
    Same procedure with the doors but truthfully I would buy new locks and keys and call it a day there.

    Ilco Ferrrari keys for a 1978 are like $3

    Neiman blanks are pricey if you have to have them...

    Yep, if they scatter the "rooftop pins and springs" they can do anything they want....

    Dear friends,

    Thank you all for the Help and the input!
    I called my local Ferrari dealer and apparently they are able to make some keys ( they charge me U$ 238.00 for the ignition key)
    Mean while I bought a set of blank keys from Obertro. Turns out the Ignition is all the same but the door/gas key has 4 different options model 1,2,3 or 4
    So let's see what Ferrari Dealer has to say to me on Monday...
    But again,
    Thank you all for the help!

    If you can pull the ignition switch off, it will unlock the steering wheel then you can start the engine using a screwdriver.
