Reminds me of when we lost the key to our 71 in the sand-  fell out of 
swimming trunks.  EZ to jumper the ignition from coil to battery and 
push the bus or add another wire from starter to battery, but that 
@&*^%$%$#@ steering lock- Had to borrow a hacksaw, removed the column to 
bypass /saw out the lock.  Later added a hidden starter switch under the 
dash and an ignition switch.  Irony was the park called a day later to 
say someone found and turned in the key!!

  Key would turn just enough to unlock the steering column.

I made a jump wire from the battery to the coil and jumped the starter

with a screw driver.  Got me home.
