International Auto Parts (IAP) shows key blanks in their catalog and I've seen them on eBay as well.

I have a few key blanks. Are there any numbers on the one you have for identification? Close up pictures of the key (both sides)?
Send info to me at ventura_ace@juno.com, and I'll see if I have something to match your key.

I have had blanks cut at an older Ace hardware store. I bought the blanks from Bayless. If you know of an old-timer's hardware store that still has their ancient inventory (our store didn't have Fiat blanks, but had old Ferrari blanks, not that I've ever seen a Ferarri in Dayton Ohio) you may have good luck getting blanks locally. Some stores have key cutting machines that won't accept our old Fiat blanks. I'd like to have another trunk key made, but the numbers are worn off so I don't know how to identify it, except that it is a small key with a diamond shaped head.

I've bought keys for all my Fiats and my Scorpion from Keys4Classics.com - some of the nicest replacement keys I've ever seen. For the Spider you want #100 for the ignition - not sure about the doors. I didn't use their code cutting service, but instead had my local locksmith pantograph cut them.

Here's a link for the 124 keys:

I consider it a cheap investment to get a replacement key that actually feels good in my hand - as close to oem as I've ever found. In fact, their #100 key is identical to the factory keys that came with both of my late X's and is very close in feel to the oem Scorp key ...and it is only $4.95.

After 25 years of dealing with junky replacement key blanks at hdw stores and locksmiths (you know the drill), the moment I take my Keys4Classics keys out of my pocket I already feel like I have a "real car" at my finger tips. I really hate crappy keys.
