Here are a few early shots of my 442. My digital camera broke about a year ago and I haven't replaced it yet. I will get a few newer shots when I get a new camera. Since I got the car I’ve had both the bumpers rechromed, added NOS tail lights, backup lights and turn signals. I still need to install the new interior and a few other things.
My girls having fun.

Thanks for the comments guys, I still have a few things to do, but don't we all.
That top is not a 65 color. The top is a 1970 color, the 65 blue color top is a sky blue or a very light blue very similar to the interior. My 442 is a Fremont car so I don't know what it came with originally. I've had a Lucerne Mist vert with a white top before. But a Lucerne Mist car, with a Lucerne Mist interior and the light blue top is waaaay too much light blue for me. I like contrasting colors on my rides when I can.
My wife's Cutlass Sports Coupe is a Lucerne Mist lower with a white roof and a Lucerne Mist interior. I changed that one to a black interior as I had stripped another sports coupe that had a nice black interior.
The tires and wheels came on the car, the SS1 is one of my favorite wheels for an Olds. And they would have been an easy upgrade for a 65 owner in the 60's to add to their car. I also like the Hurst Wheels as well for a 65. The wheels on my car came from a 71 442 and are the 14x7's to accomodate the disc brake conversion and the wide a*# tires. The tires size is; 265/R50-14's front and back.
