my rear latch had a cable release by the drivers door, probably not standard, anyone else got that (Se6a 1979)
great set of pictures and instructions tho

Iirc the boot lock will take the same key as the ignition, so it will tumble to the same.....

May do on a GTC - don't think that's the case with a GTE though?

Is the barrel not the same? I know the mech is different but I thought the barrel was the same?

I thought the rear barrel used an FS single sided key - but I've never had a post-75 GTE.

Doors and ignition are for sure.

On both mine (and particularly in the case of the mulberry car, I'm sure it's original) the ignition, doors, and rear hatch are all different. That's what the handbook says too.

[edit - and yes, Phil's right, the hatch is an FS single-sided]
