    My '65 had 1 small phillips scew on the inside of the door on the back of the lock. When this screw is removed, the bracket that holds the lock to the door can then be removed. The lock comes out the front of the door.

    Well I found out there is a tab on top of the tumbler that you need to press down with a piece of 1/8 inch wire and then pull out the lock.

    I took mine to a locksmith and they did it for free - then again, I was having keys made at the time.

    I wonder if the 64 was different. Once you pulled the tumble out by pushing in the first tab on the tumbler you use a large allen wrench to unscrew the chrome cover and pull the assembly (tumbler housing) out the side.
