4.2 motor with 68,000 miles for sale

I bought this motor from Roverland Parts for $2,250 plus shipping. It is a 1995 with 68,000 miles and it looked great except for some rust and pitting in number one cylinder. Because Southwest Rovers took the heads off to do new head gaskets, Roverland Parts will only exchange the motor, but with shipping costs and a 20% re-stocking fee I'd rather just discount it and move on.
Roverland Parts maintains that the motor will be fine. I decided to go with a re-built motor that Rob has ready.
We have left the heads off so a buyer can see the rust and pitting.
The motor is at Southwest Rovers in Albuquerque.

$1,500 plus shipping but will take parts trades.

How does rust in a cylinder happen?

The guess is that the motor was sitting in a humid climate and a valve was open.
Surprised Rob too.
Since I'm supercharging the motor I decided to go with a rebuild although Roverland Parts maintains the motor is fine with the pitting.
