Some of them sell for low enough prices to be worthwhile 2fix up and flog" projects, apart from the key issue. Hence my slight interest.  ;)
Only feasible way it seems, would be if local locksmith turns up same time as buyer and cuts / programmes key for car so it can be driven away.  :-\
Hmmm....you'd have to day insure it and make sure it had an MOT  :-\
I think you should possibly look for another get-poor-quick opportunity, Albs.  ;D
I don't know, that one seems pretty effective  :D

That's always an option. An old biker mate of mine used to change them every time he stopped for petrol.  ;D
