    If the door post is badly bent, which it looks like it could be, unfortunately this is probably a parts car. Too bad. This car has a lot of solid metal, front clip, rear quarters, etc. Not likely to get much over $1200-$1500 for it as a parts car and even at that it would have to be a motivated buyer.

    The 1975 Gran fury (4dr. Ht.) I owned years ago was hit in the side like that. The post was bent, but the body shop did a great job pulling it back in place. It never leaked water and was quiet. The bad thing is trying to find good doors, and the front fender. If it runs good it is worth $1,000.00 at the most.

    Be worth a look. Perhaps a good shop could pull the jamb post or replace it? Yes, as stated doors would be an issue. A shame to see it get parted.

    I would be nice if it could be saved. Body shops these days are a lot more conscious of liability issues from trying to straighten out structural components that have been compromised.

    Very true...unfortunately.
    We've got a couple of small restoration focused shops in the area, maybe they would be more inclined to take on a project like that vs. The "get them in and out" insurance driven shops.

    Anyone close for “Eyes on”? Can you ship damage cars like that across the border? Just curious..

    Also I’m geographically challenged when it comes to Canada. Where is “Leduc AB” in relation to the US? Above Washington state?

    Leduc is way up near Edmonton, a couple hours north of Glacier Nat'l Park in Montana. Was just up there last year.

    Go to the north end of I15, continue for 350 miles, and you're there.

    Perhaps I'm seeing something differently? Rather than a direct hit, as it started at the end of the front fender, it might have been more of a "glancing blow" rather than a "direct hit'? Which could mean that the center post has not been displaced very much at all, with the rear door shell being deformed the most (needing replacement). The front door still seems to be closed and in reasonable alignment, at least from the pictures.

    Most of the modern drive-on frame machines I've seen are more oriented toward front or rear pulls, not issues with the side of the car (where a Uniside item would be sectioned-in or fully replaced, cowl to tail light).

    If the rocker panel is not deformed, then you could get a center section from a donor vehicle, drill out the spot welds and sealer on both items, and replicate the factory (body shop) assembly process with OEM-level repairs. Hopefully, the donor vehicle could supply a rh rr door, too.

    BUT, in the end, it's a "financial total" any way you look at it. fwiw. But for a buyer with some welding experience that could do the work themselves, to an OEM level of execution, might make a decent winter project AND result in a nice car for several years to come.

    Just some thoughts,

    Western Montana, east side of the Rockies, about as far from the coast as Columbus is from you.
