    I have a 1966 Charger. The car has been taken apart so long I forget how the door and trunk locks are positioned. Do the keys go in right side up or upside down. My ignition key goes in upside down (the teeth up).

        FWIW- "teeth up" is generally "right side up" to most locksmiths.

        Teeth up is the correct way for any lock (including house doors) I was told by a locksmith. The other way is upside down an the tumblers catch any dirt and eventually jam
        Chrysler has always been teeth up, correct until they too went to double sided.
