I would clean it, and kill any mildew with bleach, spraybomb it w/ inexpensive paint and be happy...not worth putting too much time, money, or energy into an old freezer...might last 20 days, or 20 years???
I cleaned and dried mine originally. After about 2 months the rust was back and getting worse. You can cut your losses and resell it and buy a new/better one or spend the extra 30 bucks and 2 hours fixing what you have. I don't mind putting a few dollars and 2 hours into something so it lasts for 20 years. I figure I will get my money back out of it soon enough.
