Engine runs excessively hot(in my opinion)

Hi everyone,
I have a 65 Impala with a 73 or 74 350 in it. At idle it runs at 218-220 degrees. Few degrees higher after driving a while. At that point my oil pressure has dropped to the low 20's. I have a new aluminum radiator, new water pump, new 180 t-stat and have flushed the block. I also replaced my 5 blade fan with 2 electric fans which really move a lot of air through the radiator. At this point I have no idea how to get the temp back down and my oil pressure back up. Any ideas would be appreciated.
