My '85 5ks has had a broken grille since before it fell into my hands 
- this may be difficult with an unbroken grille.
I simply slide my hand through the grille, under the hood, palm up, 
slightly to the driver's side of center, grab the first (probably 
only) cable I feel, give it a tug, and the hood pops open (well not 
all the way - I still have to lift it fully open).
