Welcome to the Z from WV.. To answer some of your questions the 472 CIU could come from any of several variations- ie 400CIU stroker, 440 stroker, Mopar performance engine and so on. You would need to ask the owner what it started life as. As far as rust it will all depend on where the car lived most of it's life and was it an outside car or inside car.. floor pan rust, trunk rust, cowl rust could all be there.. good luck
