This steering box was used in multipal gm cars up until the late 80's or 90's. You should  be able to find one in a junk yard over there.

@Cattle Axe Thanks for the hint. I am aware that it bolts right in, but this is what I try to avoid. The later boxes have the variable ratio and many other small changes, as far as I know.
I want the part that came from the factory in '62.

I am in the strange situation that I have two sets of original keys to my car but no original locks. (The keys were hidden in magnet boxes, but this knowledge was forgotten through the chain of owners. So the original locks were already destroyed when I got the car.)

A friend has told me he can make matching locks out of a number of original locks. Do not ask me how, but I know him as ingenious.

Therefore I search cheap original locks without keys for "parting out".

To my understanding the locks are the same for:

Door: '61-'64 2dr
Glovebox: '61-'62 all except Series 75
Trunk: '62-'64


Please correct if I am wrong.

Thanks!

I bought all the locks for my 61 from him years ago, and recently I needed a replacement trunk lock to match my glovebox lock and he was able to key it before sending it.   He might be able to sell you a lock set that is matched to the keys you found or have a solution for you.   

He also supplied me with lock wafers so I can re-key the door locks to match on my '58.

@Willits   Peter, this is a great hint, thank you. I will keep it in mind. But I cannot decline my friends friendly offer to do it for me. I assume he does the same as Mr. Sestak. However, he has no blanket locks....
