"very low compression across all cylinders"

There are two components that have to seal up to make a motor valid, valves and piston rings. Neither is a "fairly easy fix".

The cheapest fix may be to transplant another motor from the boneyard. Find a good compression, low mileage motor and swap it out yourself. I'd consider a swap in either case, whether you plan to keep it or to sell it.
