How old are you guys answering this question? Yes, the main reason was for safety but a heck of a lot of the streets in small country towns in the 40's and 50's didn't have paving. When they were muddy from rain or slushy from melting ice/snow you slid out the passenger side (if there was a sidewalk) even on a car with locks on both sides.

Well I'll be 70 in December and owned a 51 3100 in the 60's. We lived on a corner and the side street was gravel. I wore galoshes before I wore shoes. Does that qualify?

GM has made it impossible to lock your keys in the truck. The driver's door is locked by pushing the interior handle forward and then the passneger's door needs to be locked with the key. If you have door locks on both exterior handles, one must be locked with the key.


AD, your right, I checked and could not lock the door without the key. What's weird is somehow my AD back in the early 60's was able to lock itself because I used a local locksmith to unlock it on at least 1 occasion. (slow learner) I don't know what I did but whatever it was didn't workout well for me. A good friend of mine's dad had a glass shop and replaced vent glass twice. headscratch

The AD door locks can mess up and go into lock mode when you shut the door. I believe there is a discussion about this in the shop manual and it claims the an improper adjustment can lead to this. I have had it happen. If this happens to the driver's door and the passenger's door is locked from inside, the key will not unlock it.

I too have had the doors lock when I shut the door. Fortunately, if I can grab the top of the glass on the passenger side, I can just pull it down and reach in and unlock the door. I have no idea why it is so easy to do that.

Most of the time I don't bother to lock the doors.
