Never tried this as usually I have a key.

If you can get rear seat removed, and the coupe latch is held on by two large screws. That's it.

Or boot is held on by 4x bolts. 

I will take pics and send. Give u an idea.

Sadly it is impossible to get access due to tank, been in this exact position before. you can get to the 4 hinge bolts, but then it still does not help to flick the latch. Worst for me was I had flipped the mechanism and had de-locked boot lid, so it was operated by an old Escort actuator that failed. I installed a cable backup after I repaired it.

Yes had a look near impossible with tank in place, has holes been cut for aftermarket speakers? 

Or floor grommet just below one 13mm bolt😎 long extension on a nuckle.

Would be easy enough to fit a pull cable on end of that lock barrel.

Amazingly when I got my car 2 years ago now, it had two original keys and all matching locks, if I remember rightly from a long time back (1966 HA Viva) you can set the tumblers to match anyway?
