Before you do anything DRASTIC, call your local GM dealer to see if he can cut you a new key using your VIN number. Some dealers do, some don't...they will need proof of ownership also.
Other suggestion would be a locksmith using "try-out keys".
Good Luck.

What is the procedure to changing an keyed ignition lock?


Hi there,

Removal

Disconnect the negative battery cable with the proper size wrench and place away from the battery.
Insert the key into the ignition lock cylinder and turn the key to the run position.
Remove the steering column cover on a tilt steering wheel model by pressing the upper and lower section of the cover together and pulling free from the mounting plate. Remove the steering column covers on a non tilt steering wheel model by using a Philips screwdriver and unscrewing the mounting screws.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the ignition switch by lifting up on the release tab and pulling.
Press the ignition switch actuator pin by pushing a small screw driver into the key lock cylinder, while doing this pull the ignition switch out of the ignition switch housing.

Installation

Insert the new key into the new ignition switch and turn the key to the run position. Insert the new ignition switch into the ignition switch housing. Wiggle the switch back and forth until the actuator pin mounting hole is aligned and falls into place.
Install the electrical connector back into the connector housing by pressing it in with your hands.
Place the steering column covers back onto the non tilt steering wheel and insert mounting screws. Tighten screws using a Philips screwdriver. Place the steering column covers over the tilt steering wheel and press the upper and lower portion together to snap covers back into the mounting plate.
Pull on the ignition key to ensure switch is locked into place. Turn key to the "off" position and remove the key. Insert the key and start the vehicle.

Hope these help.

    How do you take a ignition switch out of a 1977 chevy pickup with a non tilt steering column?


    Pop the center out of the wheel, disconnect the horn. Remove the big nut. Use steering wheel puller to remove wheel.

    DC horn wiring again, remove plastic cover. Depress lock plate and remove circlip. DO NOT LOOSE. remove lock plate. some have a small 3/16 allen screw holding key tumbler in others have a flat spring to depress.

    If the actual switch (not lock cyl) is bad you will have to lower the colum from the dash Remove screws (4) holding te plastic piece under the colum2 bolts it will swing down and allow access to the ignition Sw, top side of the colum.
