I’m nearing the end of the restoration of my 1958 Fargo Sweptside truck, and the original keys were long gone when I pulled the truck out of the woods, so I’m going to have to get a locksmith to make an ignition key up for me.
Since I’m going to have to do all of that, I may as well find an original style blank for the truck.
Can anyone shed some light on what type of key would have come from the factory in a 1958 Sweptside truck?

While each make of Forward Look car had their own logo style key blanks in 1958, (and other years through 1960) I believe the trucks came with a generic style hexagonal head ignition /door key. I'm speaking as a 50 year career locksmith.

So Ian, how would you rate these non-Aluminum Mopar keys from Jesser's?

Nothing wrong with them, they are NOS nickel plated brass. Not sure why but they seem to have made them of both materials.
