The vehicle was last driven in 1964. I have no keys to the car. The trunk is locked. My question is what is the truck button function? Is it electric or hydraulic? The button does not work. The hydraulic system is dry but most of the electrical works. Could the trunk be currently unlocked needing only the button to open?
Many more questions! Thank You Ron

My trunk lock was actually disconnected, so I took out the back seat and managed to reach past the previously bent cardboard to reach the latch from the inside.  Then took to locksmith.

Yes I was able to remove the glove box lock, get the key number and have  a key made that opened the trunk. Inside the trunk was a very nice original jack and a mint gallon oil can.
