I would like to replace the door locks on my Saxon, because I don't have the keys, do you know which car comes from the handles?

Hmm, would need a picture of your door. I think the Saxons had different door handles. Are the locks separate from the handles? Sebrings use handles from a mid 1970s Chevrolet Chevette. Saxons may use handles from a real Healey depending on when they were made. Either way it's probably less hassle and cheaper to have a lock-smith cut you some new keys, these are pretty simple locks so shouldn't be difficult.

My Sebring 5000 has door handles from a VW beetle, early 70's.

Hey Westton,
The common pull type door handles are from the Chevette and use the most common GM lock cylinders and keys used throughout the '70s and '80s. I agree with David, probably cheaper and easier to get them made at a locksmith. If that's not doable in your area, you could get new lock cylinders with keys.

Hello
These are not the flat handles like on the sebrings, they look like those of real healeys. Following the suggestion made here I carefully look on the internet for photos of beetle handles, and I think that is it. Besides, the interior handle also comes from a Beetle .
Have keys redone without having the original cost around 40 €! the 2 new locks for Beetle with keys cost 30 € !!! Since the chrome of my locks is slightly pitted, I will order new locks.

I also have the Beetle handles in and out and Beetle roll-up window mechanisms on my Sebring built in 1987.
