Welcome to the Team Chuck!
If the new parts bolt on you could use your mechanical skills. If you need patch panels or quarters welled in and you have the parts a professional welder would be of help. I think dropping it of at a restoration shop will cost an arm and a leg.
I might add many vocational high schools offer night classes in welding and body work. It would be well worth your time and money to attend and buy a good TIG welder with pulse and dual voltage controls (the pro models). Then you buy an air compressor and do the body work yourself. It is not only going to save you a bucket of money but it will fill you with pride in your new found skills. Don't be surprised when you show your car that some one doesn't ask you to do their car after you tell them you did all the work yourself.
