Are you talking about the hood latch? Can you remove the front grille, then try to reach the latch through the opening? Is the release in the cab or under the hood, some older vehicles there is no hood release in the cab.
I used to have an older ford pickup. Only had the mechanical latch at the front of hood. I used a long pair of pliers to grab that latch. I bent bent it pretty good, but I finally got the hood up, then lubed the latch mechanism. Good luck.
