This old of vehicle is a likely candidate for salvage yard ignition switch/tumbler replacement. Remove covers for access and you will likely find the attaching screws that mount the switch have break off heads, can get a small sharp punch or chisel to tap with hammer and break loose, once it starts to turn typically comes out very easily. If can get grinding wheel in there then slot the heads for removal, when reinstall slot the heads for ease of assembly. You will now have another key to deal with.
