Any rust is "Too much rust"
Good low mileage parts car, rust under side chrome strip indicates serious pending problem. Same for motor compartment, I have had to dispose of better, less rusted bodies. Buy it for parts and running only, wait for better body. I have a rust free 69 280SE car purchased for $500 needed motor work though.
Note the rust to the owner and offer $500-800. Rust restoration and paint will be 5-8k. The motor (after rebuilding, re-sealing, rings, valves, gasketing)) will be worth the price.
