Every since I got my 67 I haven't been able to open the glove box door. No key I own opens the door. Any idea on how I can get it open without drilling the key button?

I went at looked at my 67 glove box. I don't think unbolting the door and removing the liner will work to get access to the back side. But I would try it first, a new liner is less than a new lockset.

I have the opposite problem I can’t keep it closed, drive around and it pops open all the time. Not much to adjust might have to start bending stuff but would be still nice to be able to open it later as well.

I think the local locksmith is a good idea
Drive it to the shop gave them look at it
Probably won’t be much to have them pick
the lock 🤷‍♂️

Typically your trunk key fits the glove box unless one or both have been changed. A worn key might also give you a problem. If you have a fresh trunk key made it may or may not unlock the box. Otherwise, as mentioned, locksmith. Don't jack up your dash trying to seduce the lock.

The original trunk/door key doesn't fit my glovebox, nor does it work in either door.
I replaced the trunk lock so I now have separate keys for that.
No loss in getting a fresh key for the glovebox if needed.

Do you have the original trunk lock? There would be a code a locksmith could cut you a new key from. That key would work in the glove box lock if it was original.
No, it was drilled out when I bought the car. The po was opening the trunk with a screwdriver
