New Project - 1965 Olds 442

Hi, I'm looking for some info on firstgen 442's. I just drug home a new project, a '65 Olds 442 post 4-speed car like one I owned years ago, except this one is a tad worse for wear than my old one was, but is saveable. A 400 motor came with the deal and an automatic tranny, also got a 455 which I may use. I also got a '65 442 hardtop body which will serve as a donor car. The floor in the coupe is good, will need a trunk pan, which IS being repro'ed, but I'm also needing patch panels for the rear quarters. Is anyone repro-ing those, or will other GM panels work? Does anyone know of a web site that handles parts for the early cars? I find sites for the later 442's but not much for 65's. Would appreciate any help.
