Hmm, I don't know about the late model 5000's, but on the 77-83 5000's
if you are very clever, you will find a hole behind the seat big enough
to undo the 2 or 3 bolts. that hold one side of the latch(I don't
remember which).   I think they have internal hex heads...allen screws. 
If you are very patient/clever etc, and have someone to hold a
flashlight, you can remove the screws with a very long socket extension.
 Sure, it's a pain in the ass, but it beats drilling out a lock.
