Default 240 Sedan trunk access - removing rear seat w/o going into trunk?

Anyone know how to remove the rear seat on a 240 Sedan (90) without getting into the trunk? Or, to put it another way, any way to get into the trunk from the passenger compartment?

Why am I asking? My 240 sedan was in a crash back in February and I replaced it with a 240 Wagon (92), but I have stuff in the trunk and before I let it go I would like to get that out of the trunk. Problem is that the car was T-boned on the rear, and the body doesn't line up with the trunk - body got shifted over about an inch, and there seems to be too much pressure to open it.

Previous post on this forum suggested a Sawzall, but I prefer not to completely destroy the car - the hope is to get it back to "street legal" and sell as a city car. I have tried a crowbar to push the trunk over, to no avail.

Thanks in advance!

Even if you take the back seat out you cant get to the trunk, You will have to either pry open the trunk or cut it open
