Paul, I have tackled this problem numerous times with client's cars and the Gray Ghost which hadn't had a wheel off sense the Carter administration.
I use a very thin plastic handle steel paint scraper.
Find the crack (can you still do that at your age?) between the spacer and hub and tap the scraper with a hammer. Go around the hub until the seal pops loose. Once it pops switch tools from the scraper to a flat head screw driver. Repeat going all the way around the hub. There will be corrosion on the studs so you will have to do the back and forth until it comes all the way aff the studs. At this point use the largest flathead screwdriver you have so it acts as a pry bar. Once off you can clean all the corrosion off and use anti-sieze on the stud base threads.
