Steve, you'll have to remove the grill to access the latching mechanism.
If it's a cable release system, you might be able to reach up from the bottom, cut the cable and pull the wire to open the latch......

Let me see, Steve Martin, a 1978 Pacer, hmmmmmmmmm.

Ok, I'll bite, I am not sure but you may be able to get a long extension thru the grille to unbolt the latch. The hinges are just about out, I don't remember (having only worked on two Pacers in my life) but unless it is VERY different from just about every car made, there is no way to get to the hinge bolts. If I knew where one was at the wreckers or something I would go check it out for you but I don't know where to find one!
