First of all, great car!
As for this issue, JJAYMECH is touching on the common issues with these mid 60's Ford hinges.
As they age they start to bind. Many people have actually bent their hoods on the longer nose vehicles because they bind in the up position.
However, you may need to try and access the hinges from under the vehicle in order to lubricate them. This vehicle has large fenders and the hinges are not easily accessible with the hood down.
Once you do spray them, he is correct that you need to start working the hood as much as it will move so that the lubricant can start to work into the hinge.
Please let us know how you make out on this vehicle. Thanks
