RE: 1983 300d -- trunk won't open
Maybe the ignition or trunk lock had been changed at some point? If it's the original trunk lock, then you can get a new key from the dealer. That might be the cheapest solution if it works. If the trunk lock was changed at some point, then you're out of luck. Can also check with a locksmith.
