Eek, you mean re-assemble the car on a different frame? Yikes. Not something I would pay somebody to do. That is something you do yourself over many months.

Yeah even if you can find a rust free, unbent frame. Suspect a new one is not available for any amount of money.

Rust free and unbent frames are out there, but they're usually still attached to high-mileage vehicles driven by gardeners and teenagers. And rust-free and maybe only slightly bent frames are available from any decent junkyard in the desert southwest - you can check for bent before you take it off the truck.
But be sure to check with your state's DMV /before/ you do the actual frame swap work, since the chassis serial number for your vehicle (the number that /really/ counts for legal purposes, not the plate behind the windshield or the tag on the doorjamb) is stamped on (you guessed it...) the chassis.
You may have to get the State to issue you a special ID sticker for the new chassis, so when a state trooper looks underneath for the frame serial number he doesn't immediately get suspicious at seeing the wrong VIN number (from a salvaged vehicle), a hand-stamped number or a big blank spot (from a reproduction chassis) instead of the factory-stamped VIN number matching the body tags and the title that he expects to find there...
You can avoid a night or two in jail, the impounding of your car, and a lot of hassles in court to get it back...

Below is the long version of the above, California Law based. Your state's laws and procedures probably will differ, but not too much. Feel free to snip them off if you reply.
