The kes holds the caliper in place, the spring keeps it from ratteling. I would check ford midsized cars from the 70's early 80 to see if a front key would work. I checked the interchange list on line and they did not have that part listed, Try granada monarch, fairlane, maverick mustang front keys.. what I do when I don't have an interchange book is go to napa auto parts on line and look up the part number for a 76 versailles front caliper then look up the part number for the various cars listed and years and compare part numbers . that will give you an idea of which cars to look for at a wrecking yard to fing the missing keys. most versailles parts are long out of stock , you can still find calipers, rotors and pads,
