Cannot open doors on my 67 mustang. Can anyone help?
Locks seem to work but not sure if they really are. Even my body man can not open. Windows are down so I can work from the inside

Have you contacted any locksmiths to see if they know what might be causing this?

Did you try spraying it with any lube or WD40 to see if that would loosen it?

Does the button push in on the outside door handle? If not, then the locking mechanism is seized and will need to be replaced. Or, there is a connecting rod between the latch and the door handles that WILL come off. I have had to replace both of the above. Its tricky, but it can be done in about 30 minutes.

i'm confirming capnkelly's comment. it's common that the clips pops off the latch drive rod. it requires removing the armrest and trim panel, roll the window up and try to move the actuator to the latch with a pocket screwdriver. it's a blind operation.
while your there clean out the latch and relube and replace the clips.
