I may have one but don't know about the key, I'll have to look in the back to see if one is still available, will get back to you.

I have a glovebox door, black in color, with lock mechanism, but no key. Get with me if you're interested. $15 (this includes shipping in the lower 48 ).

Finally got a chance to slap it all together and it seems to work just fine


this is the whole assembly i pulled from an old nova we got stashed back in the woods...btw why did chevy have to make the retainer 8 sided?


I removed the back of the glove box door and had to shave down the area where the mechenisim sandwhichs the door...the plastic was thicker then the metal door this lock came off. just fyi i opted for sandpaper when i realised how much material i had to remove

it all fit together great except the tang that orients the latch did not match the door so i just used the gorilla fingers and tightned down the retainer...problem solved

well the door is back on.i actually got it to fit better then it does in this pic but as you can tell its no show car
