Question 1966 4 door trunk hinge repair

The trunk would close (from being all the way open) about 2 or 3 inches and then would stop. I got inside the trunk and look at the hinges and the was a pin that holds part of the hinge together and one end of it was completely sheared off. I eventually got the trunk shut but then nothing lined up. so i'm not sure what i need to do or what i should do to repair it. What do i need to do ?

Welcome to the Team!

Replace the trunk hinge if the pin has sheared off. You will have to shop on line for a used part as they are not reproduced.
