That sure does look like a bent frame. Have insurance total it, buy it back, part out what you don't want, swap the keeper stuff into a new one or buy a V6 shell for cheap to convert to a "GT".

Sorry about your car man. Mine was 100 times worse and it's back to life now.

I say you find a fender and all the other parts you need first, then have a body shop fix it. Be patient and find a good body shop.

I've had cars with straightened frames before... never drove quite right afterwards but both places that did the straightening just "pulled" them straight. I know from buddies that a good frame shop has a machine that will get everything right back into factory spec and make it good as new. But it will always have that accident on the carfax unless you got out of there with no police report. And even then a guy with a good nose for body work will probably be able to spot the work.

When they pull they do it just to fit. So I was told by a buddy's dad who works at a shop. I found a front end for $100 on craigslist from a donor and also found a guy on here who welded it all himself.

Yeah I've seen some cancer patients (cars with rust lol) that had an entire front end swap with another rust free car. If its done right, you can't even tell.

Went through this on my old beater. I pulled the motor and clipped the frame and straightened the right side, then clamped and tacked the new frame on and took it to a shop to have it welded and reinforced correctly, then took the car back home and put it back together... I think i spent less than $200 at the shop. I never did have the car repainted tho because it was a 200k miles junker.

Needless to say... Dont give up on that car.... It looks to me like only the first couple inches of the frame is bent up. Leave the motor in and weld in what you need and keep that sucker on the road.

Alot of trimming and measuring lol. That was the first and only time ive ever done it and im no body man. But it turned out great and was strong enough you could stand on the end of the frame and jump up and down... Best bet might be to get the frame off of craigslist and disassemble the front end and trailer it to a shop.... Just do the rest yourself.

If your question was how did I wreck the car.... I was on the highway and one of the salt trucks left a huge patch of salt on a sharp turn and when I hit it the car didnt turn like i had planed... Hit the concrete median doing about 60

Been a few months but she's starting to come back together piece by piece. Hopefully in the next month have all the last of the parts and some time to do the rest of the work. Gonna post some pics here soon. Got a deal for the frame, a termi cobra bumper, core support, ac inter cooler , pass. Fender and hood w/scoop for $300 so no complaints here so far

So to all those who said it was totaled think again. Welder some knowledge and a little patience go a distance. Not to forget empty pockets afterwards but all worth it

Had a similiar wreck myself at about to same Speed. Jumped the curb and hit an electricity pole. Didn't bend the frame, atleast not enough to need to do anything I know of. Bent the axle and have have an untraceable noise in the rear end since. But she's back not the same of course. Minute little things but the car will never be the same after.
