Sounds like an expensive project car to me. It also sounds like the car was a bit neglected which could mean hidden bigger issues. The rust situation sounds like something I would stay away from alone. Could mean a cheap MB initially and very expensive later. No mention if bigger service items were done like head gaskets , timing chain guides and rails, accumulators, AC etc. At that mileage a lot of big ticket items need attention.
