That would be a real risky repair. With that many miles on it, it will have a lot of wear in the lower end. It also depends on how hot the car got to cause the problem in the first place. If the gasket is bad enough that it won't even run, chances are good that everything is destroyed. You don't want to make an investment like that and then find out that you still have a junk motor. I would look for a used motor for it.
