Definitely not nitpicking.😉
I bought my car almost 10 years ago from the family of the original owner. It had been sitting a long time and only had just under 13000 miles.
All the parts you mentioned are original to the car and dated 1 56 with one or two dated 12 55.
Also the solenoid and the correct jack. Paper is still on the control box, rainbow wipers, eversure mirror and correct sized hose clamps, it even had the original radiator hoses and fan belt and road speed tires.
Someday it will need to come apart for a complete resto and if it's in my lifetime I'll have all the right parts for it to be concours quality.
So, if you find an ignition switch dated before 2 56, I'm interested.😃

> In my case,the key had been lost by the original owner and the ignition switch was changed.thankfully the boot was unlocked. I got a key for the boot by checking the number on the shaft and when I got my heritage certificate, I realized that the number on the boot lock was correct and the ignition was wrong. Thanks to Pete Groh, I now have the correct cylinder for my ignition. Now I'm still looking for a switch dated 1 56 or before.

> I would like to confirm that the BN1 had one key that operated both the ignition switch & the boot lock. If this is correct, my BN1 has an FA barrel for the ignition & an unmarked FS barrel for the boot lock. I assume the boot lock barrel is not correct. If not, what would be correct?
