Question about Cars & Trucks
That's good. That's the position it is supposed to be in for extraction, in the on or run position. Take the steering wheel off...or wait, maybe you don't have to...It's been too long, and I haven't done that many But find the lock cylinder removal procedure. Local libraries often have old repair manuals. Some had a pin hole you stuck a pin in that released the cylinder. And some Chevy's had a screw to remove behind the steering wheel, but that may have been later years. Anyway, I think you need a new lock cylinder. Try some WD 40 and see if you can unstick it.

Hi Willy, It may be a problem of a worn key, but on that age of vehicle it's more likely to be a worn ignition barrel. Try and have the key replaced first and it that fails, be ready to replace the barrel and key. Happy new year and Regards John

try turning the wheel to the right/left while turning the key in the ignition. You have to apply some force. Your car is probably outliving its road life.
Cheers & Best Wishes

the next time you do get it out,take the key to any hardwear store that makes key's,have them make a dupe if they have a blank,so you have a copy,then have them run your key on there wire brush to smoth all the sharp edges,if it still sticks, then replace the ignition sylinder. good luck
