Default Advice on these frames?

So I was browsing around craigslist and came across these 2 bikes...

1. Unknown Make ($75) Looks to be in good condition, can anyone identify the bike?

2. Murray Missile ($40) The bike clearly has some wear on it, and the owner says it has some surface rust.

3. Walmart Cruisers ($85-$115) Obviously the perks of brand new would be no rust whatsoever, havent been beaten on at all. I could pick up a Del Mar for $99 with a $20 gift card. Men's 26'' Schwinn Delmar Cruiser with Bonus $20 eGift Card: Bikes, Scooters & Skates

The reason I'm torn is that I plan on sanding down the bike and repainting anyway. So I've been assuming the Murray Missile would be the best as its cheap and if I'm gonna sand it away, that should take care of any rust on the bike. But it's also a much older bike, and I don't know its structural integrity.

What do you guys think?
