My recently aquired HPE only had one door key, fitting the driver's door and nothing else. My guess is that the drivers door lock was changed some time in the past. (Even though the car most likely has only done 57k km.) I am reasonably certain that the '77 Beta saloon I had had a separate key for the glove locker while the fuel flap, trunk and both doors were the same key. Memory is a bit more foggy regarding the '76 HPE but I think the glove locker was separate and the fuel cap, rear hatch and both doors were the same. Can anybody confirm?

My 1975 coupe has same key for doors, boot, fuel flap and glove box.

Swapping rusty doors are the most common cause of multiple keys, most folk don't bother to swap the lock barrels - which always makes me chuckle as it's only 2 Phillips head screws!
