There used to be photos of a tool made from an aluminum strap that could release a hood with broken cable.

One of the aftermarket Corvette suppliers (sorry I can't remember which one) had a tool for that purpose.

I googled C3 hood release tool and got all manner of YouTube videos and Forum posts. I couldn't find a specific tool but found others that had described things that they had made.
