Default Ignition lock

I picked up a 2000 chevy truck as a doner/parts truck for a future project,but I didn`t get a key with it.The question is can I just drill the lock and use a screwdriver for a key to see if it runs?I`m sure I can with a Ford but is the Chevy pretty much the same lock setup?

It depends if that year truck had a chip on the key. I would press the person you bought it from to find the key!

Question

I'm a ford guy but built a gmc, mine was an early model, i pulled the wheel off and made access to ignition switch/lock, one small pin holds all together.
Hope this helps, but i may be wrong,

The pin is right but to change the cylinder you need to rotate the key to the start position,kinda hard to do without a key.
