Always quote make/model/year and engine size when communicating about cars.
My hours guide does state around an hour to do the gasket.
But as the cheapest garage around me starts at around £45+ the dreaded an hour you've an idea of costs.
So I'd say get your friend to do it.
As for the car being scrap put it in for an Mot and see just what it will fail on first.
No point in getting anything fixed if it is indeed a real dog.
