Just to inject a counter argument here.. From what I've read, you're 
looking at a very large project that, because all the pages are 
inconsistent, would be difficult for skilled developers to complete 
successfully, on time and under a reasonable budget.

Your final end result - if you were able to complete the project 
successfully - would be a web site that produces the exact same results, 
except for being served by WordPress.

Before making such a heroic effort, I would ask myself if there aren't 
better ways my time could be spent to help save the company from 
bankruptcy... The problem with such a large project, is that if it is 
only partially completed, the results are probably worthless.  Other 
solutions may produce immediate tangible benefits.
