Assuming you're gonna save every salvageable part before having it crushed, especially the hood?  How's the roof.  Some of those had vinyl tops.  Someone might be interested in the roof.  Doors?  Trim?  Bumpers?  Etc?
 
I can't remember if the hoods are interchangeable between the cyclone and fairlane.  Looks like you've found a nice '67 Fairlane GT hood anyways.

ahh! that's not bad. i was thinking more like the color of "raptors" car! the dark green is fine if you like that, seems like many of those cars of that era were dark green, dark blue, or red
