It should stay depressed by itself until it's heated up, then pop out. If the lighter itself isn't functioning, it shouldn't interfere with use of the socket as a voltage source.

FYI I purchased an exact replica of the rusted out lighter socket for my '64 at an O'Reilleys, on the rack next to other electrical do-dads. Apparently it was a common item for many different cars for many years.
