I can slide the key in but it won’t budge , I sprayed it with several lubricants but it did no good, I called a locksmith and he told me to drill it he said he doesn’t do classic cars , any input would be appreciated

Have you tried pumping up/down on the deck lid? Not enough to damage it, but possibly enough to free up any frozen linkage. Assuming there's some give in the rubber seal...

A few months ago we got a buddy's trunk open by (as suggested) removing the back seat, then making a notch in the end of a long bar with a cutoff wheel that would engage the very-short amount of tang that comes from the lock cylinder and extends through the latch mechanism. The tang is flexible enough that you can twist it from the inside end and open the trunk, then replacing the lock is an easy deal.
