Check out the muggyweld product for joining pot metal. They call it super alloy. Lots of great videos. Some incredible repairs.Well - my 66 Monaco was ordered with a 426 Hemi due to the proposed then cancelled 66 Hemi M... and so was delivered with the 440 motor instead - so if we're talking phantom cars, this one was very nearly built.
So if I had my druthers (since my car has everything else except the hemi already, either assembly line installed or in the trunk in boxes according to the original owner, since some of the options weren't available on Dodges, only Chryslers but he ordered them anyway with the intent of installing them):
1966 Dodge Monaco (Canadian)
Power Vent windows
AM/FM search tuner
Child safety power window lockout
Autopilot (all the system needs is a clutch pedal system release button - I've already worked it out)
And then to top it off, I'd love to see a hideaway headlight grill on a 66 Monaco. It could be done, but it's going to take a lot of fabricating. I have all the parts to do it, just got to figure out how to weld pot metal to make the headlight doors... here is a photo shop someone did - and they also did a full frontal photo shop, but I can't find the image... 't'would look KILLER!!

Definitely don't throw out broken castings anymore.
