I agree FlatTire. That is a beautiful green, but the black hood just looks like an aftermarket hood waiting to get painted green. The square design on these old cars doesn't lend itself to a clear division point for a two tone paint scheme. Usually, there is a chrome piece or some other interuption between the two colors. I remember a 1955 Dodge we owned that was Red and White. Man, that was a pretty car, but there was a chrome strip separating the two colors. I don't think the classic Mustang bodies are conducive to having a two tone color effect. My 2c.
I think he'd have to stay right below the body lines with the top color like they doon the HEMIs. It's a good look that the Mopars have but it'd be lame if it wound up looking too much like a Dodge.

Check out . . . and tell me what you think.
Imagine (or photoshop) the car with the top down. You lose a lot of the visual mass of the black portion.
Maybe something like this would work. You need to see a little sliver of black all the way from front to back when you're looking at it in pure waist-level side view, and it doesn't have to follow the contour precisely. A pinstripe (or two) could serve as a visual boundary. I think you'd want to be careful to avoid making the black area of the quarters look too "heavy" too quickly, so you'd probably follow the quarter panel top contour a little more closely than in the OE two-tone below.
