    I have a 67 hood and am in Florida. The issue with my hood is the hinge area is rusted, but the skin is pretty solid if you want to pick it up and graft parts together.

    I bought a fiberglass replacement from US body in Longwood. Fit and finish is really nice.

    Oh well, no hood for you LOL.

    Either way, welcome. I don't know where in Fla you are located, but I am going to the show in Silver Springs on Jan 12. That is roughly mid-state.

    I'm going to say, 'No', unless you install the Comet fenders and grille along with it.

    Join this club too. Looking for a Fairlane hood on the biggest Fairlane club on the planet is your best option.
