    Looking great, Pat! That interior is gorgeous, looks like a great place to spend 1 or 1,000 miles :D I've got the same Forever Sharp wheel in the Mach 1 in black leather. I love it.

    Looks like a JFK-era FBI vehicle. Think I saw one in the film: Mississippi Burning.

    Looking forward to the engine compartment now. Yesterday I spent way too long looking at the classic Olds site on a 62 Jetfire resto thread. I'm going into a deep 215 AL block rabbit hole!
    Dad took one out of a 63 F 85 = 43 years ago, I have the engine still. Yours is amazing, that pot metal on the tail is stunning.(along with interior, grill...)
    Cheers,
