I would not worry about the rust on the frame. That is basically cosmetic and trying to do some quick spray on sealer over the rust will only cause problems down the road. Your frame will flex and crack most any paint they put on it, moisture will get under the paint and speed the rusting process. It will take another 40 or more years before the rust become a real issue. Go up North to snow/salt country and they would call that frame "like new". I think you got a great deal on the truck. When you get a chance flush the coolant and fluids if not done recently, that is a much better use of your money.
