Really need to remove the wheel in order to reach the ignition lock?
Maybe removing the garnish from the steering column might do the trick. I don't know much about Coronas but in 70's Celicas it's screwed from below.

If you have to remove the wheel:
1. Carefully remove steering wheel center emblem with a screwdriver
2. Release nut that holds wheel on steering column
3. Pull wheel

If the wheel is on there for a couple of years you might need a pulling tool. Or you should let the nut untightened on the bolt when you start beating the wheel from behind in order to keep it out of your face. :D

Is the ignition key, and the door key the same?

You could remove the door lock cylinder, and read the code on it, then bring that code to a dealer and they may be able to cut you a new key.... **IF** they have the old info

If you have a few friends with old Toyotas, there is a good chance that one of their old worn out keys will fit in your old worn out ignition. I'm serious. At one point I had FIVE Corollas from the 70's, and several of the keys would work in other cars. The locks get so worn out that almost anything will work.
