Searching for old General Motors lock wafers

I am new to this forum and not a professional locksmith. It has gotten hard to get work done on old GM car locks that I decided to do it myself. I purchased a couple of Curtis No. 15 key cutters and set one up to do 1935-1966 keys and the other to do 1967. I work on 2nd generation corvettes (1953 to 1967).

I need to rekey a couple of glovebox locks and I have been unable to find the correct old wafers. The attached picture shows the older wafer I have been trying to find on the left. The later version on the right can be modified to work, but I would prefer to find ones like the left.

Hopefully this forum can give me some information about where to possible purchase them.

Thanks,

Don

Re: Searching for old General Motors lock wafers

Could you buy cylinders on ebay and cannibalize the wafers from them to fit your locks and keys?

Re: Searching for old General Motors lock wafers

Yes. I have been on the lookout for those. However, at the prices for the lock cores on eBay the wafers end up costing $6-$8 each. I could live with that, but I am hoping to find just the wafers for sale. But it may be wishful thinking.

Thanks very much for your reply,

Don
