Datsun Roadster Parts from Rallye Enterprises, Ltd.


There are a number of different key blanks. The style and look of the key vary, but appearance is the least of the problem. Any key blank will not necessarily work in any lock, even if it's a roadster blank. The difference is in the position of the slots on each side, which determine which number blocks of locks the blank will fit. Forget about operating the lock after the teeth are cut, it has to fit in the lock first! Below our part number is the number blocks that the key blank is designed to fit. Some locks have the 4-digit key number in the face of the lock next to the key slot, others like later door locks and trunk locks, have the number stamped in the side of the cylinder.

If your lock has no number intact you'll have to compare your key to these. A locksmith can also be of help. If you have the number they may be able to make a copy without copying your worn key, which is better anyway. It's a little late to be harping at you about preventive maintenance, but it's a good idea to keep a spare key to your car that isn't used, and make a copy before your key's get worn; as they get worn they are harder on the lock. We usually have a good selection of new and used locks if all else fails. Availability has at times been spotty on the below key blanks.

In the below pictures of the front and back of the keys, the edge for the "teeth" point to the area between the two keys.

Pictures are to illustrate groove pattern so you can identify key. Keys may or may not have Nissan name on them. They are very scarce, we sell what we can get at any particular time.
