One could explore this in various ways, like replace tube, rebuild threads, switch to threadless. Is it chromed, it is welded or lugged, is it one size or another, how valuable is the paint, etc... For what it costs to buy a decent new fork it's probably not worth it. Now if you have something of exceptional value, then sure, you can certainly find some way of getting it restored.
