Need estimate on repair . Not sure if frame bent . Also need passenger door. No insurance


Try a body shop. That much damage on this old is most likely a totaled rig. No insurance time to start walking or riding a bike.

Just some highlights. If the damage causing the tire not being straight is confined to the front suspension, parts for both sides to rebuild will cost about 600 bucks plus another 90 bucks for an alignment if you can do the suspension work yourself. If the frame is bent from the impact, that is a body shop repair. If the impact was great enough to affect the suspension, I suspect the door pillar will also be bent meaning more body work. Now figure in the cost of a junk yard door. Sell it for parts or junk it. What you pay for in repairs and parts will get you another ride, and newer.
