If its like the others i have done, you put the key in ACC, and insert a paper clip or small pick into the hole and rotate the cyl one way or the other and it should release, it's tricky...Some fall right out others are a real pain.

If it's like my 71, you take the wheel off and you put the key in and there's a little lever under the turn signal switch you have to push or toy with.

Yes, If there is no hole of the key entry face plate, then there will be an internal lock requiring disassemble of the top part of the column requiring a special tool.
