Seals and gaskets are very common on vehicles that sit for a long periods of time then are required for daily use. Seals and gaskets dry out and get brittle from none use and the absence of oil circulating around them.
I have purchased many older vehicles over the years with low mileage and this is usually the issue with those low mileage gems that you find in granny's barn.
