I couldn't tell you what's fair but you could DIY it very cheaply. Gaskets and seals are inexpensive. Get a Bentley's manual to guide you and get ready to spend a weekend wrenching. While you're in there you may also want to replace the water pump, hoses, belts, etc. These cars are not hard to work on, but it helps to have some expert guidance.
