Looking for advice!

My 63 impala needs floors, most of the front driver and passenger floors are gone (trunk and rear seat area is ok or intact). My frame was also hit pretty hard it appears on the crossmember right in the middle. I plan to get a new straight frame to put the body on. My question is, what steps should I take? I am concerned if I pull the body off in the condition its in it will twist and bend since the floors are bad. But I was also concerned that the frame it is currently on is bent and if I do replace the floors the alignment will also be off for when I switch to a new frame.

Let me know your thoughts! Thanks!

Im not worried about the money that will be going into the car (that's a given with any project/custom/restoration car). I love seeing classic cars or any car brought back to life from a state where they were thought to be dead or dying. I also enjoy the hunt for parts and knowledge that comes from projects like this. There is a lot of craftsmanship and knowledge that was handed down through generations, especially with impalas and lowriders, which I have always been fond of. I don't mind starting a project from a level where everything needs to be fixed or replaced. To me I rather start there than start from someones half done project or just buying an already finished project of someone else's.
