Rear end ID - is it worth rebuilding?

Just hauled in a Chrysler 9 1/4" and have a couple of questions.

It is approximately 58 1/2" from flange to flange. Width of spring perches center to center is approximately 47 1/4". It has disc brakes and a pinion snubber. Ratio undetermined but does have a type of sure grip or maybe a locker.

Any ideas as to what vehicle this came off of?

Is it worth rebuilding? It is currently locked up with a moderate amount of surface rust inside. Doesn't look like pitting has started yet.

What is the weight of this thing? Surely it weighs more than the good old 8 3/4" and maybe more than the Dana 60. It is HEAVY!

Thanks for any help you can give.
