Question '66 chrysler 300 security methods

i have a '66 chrysler300 that a friend and i have recently begun working on. While it is not our primary concern right now, we were wondering how we could make it more secure. Specifically, it's a 2dr hardtop, so the side of the car is all window, there's no body to separate the front and rear side windows. This makes it very easy to reach in, say w/ a clothes-hanger, and pull the lock on the door up. Any ideas as to how we could better that situation? Thanks!!

An alarm or relocate your door lock pin or use different smooth lock pin covers that you can't grab hold of with a cloths hanger or professional "captain hook". No matter what if the theif wants in hes/shes is going to get in so none of this will really stop them if they have their mind set on getting in.

I don't believe in wasting my money on "theft deterrents" any more complex than a starter circuit kill switch, which costs about $10.00 and about an hour or so of your time.
If a thief wants to get in your car, or take it home with him, HE WILL!
Slippery lock knobs make for broken windows, too.
Keep the car empty of anything anyone would think is desirable and can be seen through the windows.
Remember, a neat old car is something people always look at, so you've got a built-in watchdog system!
Have fun with your car. If statistics were being kept on "collector" cars, and I'm sure they are, you would see that it is very unusual for one of these to be stolen. That's why "collector" car insurance is so cheap, especially if you have mileage and use restrictions.
It's a tragedy when it happens but...at least around this part of Texas, it seems the biggest hotrod theives are the car owner's tehmselves and their "friends". Insurance fraud to finance the next project has happened, and probably still is!
