I am assuming you tried the manual switch, remember those lever people pulled to unlock the door back before power locks. And I am going to assume you tried the key to unlock the door.

I am not sure what is disconnected or broken in the door obviuosly but you may need to undo the 4 bolts that hold the drivers sear in to get more room to do work.

You don't need to get the whole door skin off just about half of it will do.

So after you undo the 4 nuts that hold the drivers seat in toss it aside and proceed to take the screws out of the door so you can tear the panel back and get to the locking mechanism to flip it unlocked in the door.

Other than that you could always cut a hole in the out side body of car and get to the locking mechnism. lol But that is pretty much all you can do.

I hear ya, you just need to be able to get in there and unlock, at worse case you may even need to sacrifice some clips or crack the door skin, I am sure with that car you won't be to disappointed.
