I'm quite sure if that machine grew up in MD there will be more rust than "surface rust". Floor pans, Rockers, tail pain? When I looked at rebuilding in the MD area it was cheaper to just get a long block or crate engine.

Make sure the manual locking hubs actually lock.

All in all though $900 seems like a pretty good deal as long as you have the time to Nickel and dime her back together.
