1967 Oldsmobile 442 Convertible

I purchased the car about a year ago from a guy in Albia, Iowa who had owned the car for 30 years.  I have spent the last year restoring it (repainting, new upholstery, new top) doing most of the work myself except for painting.  It is the original 400 engine with automatic transmission.  The name 442 equals 400 engine with 4 barrel carb and dual exhaust.
