I plan on bringing her back to life but while I do so I'm painting the block and valve cover and I'm going to get chrome pieces from American car craft to clean it up and I'm going to chrome and pinstripe the intake manifold

Will a front clip take care of the damage, or is there other stuff to do?

No actually I thought it hit a semi trailer to but I took the front grille off and the passenger and driver Side fenders and there was deer hair all in it from the lights to the motor so it hit a deer. Pretty hard I'd imagine didn't deploy airbags or anything it did break the starter housing radiator and intake as we'll. The cars doghouse on the driver side is fine but the passenger side is bent out of shape about 3".

An I actually bought another pt cruiser 2.4l non turbo 4 dr with 200k for 500 had a blown head gasket but I got the front end parts and the lower intake manifold and starter from it. But don't worry I'm not gonna junk this pt cruiser I'm going to fix it as we'll but I have to rebuild motor and I'll prolly rebuild tranny while I'm at it
