trek frame?

Hi all, new here, thinking about putting together some bikes. I picked up a couple of these frames and a pile of parts. Not sure if they are any good or what replacement parts to use for building them. The decals on the frame are Trek, vert 2, it also has a GT on the front and GT also stamped into the rear drop outs. Stamped under the bottom bracket is WTU197197R 1083B. I'm having trouble uploading the picture of it but will keep trying. Any help is appreciated. I don't want to put premium wheels on a junk frame or vice verse. Also does the frame dictate what axles/wheels I can use?

IMO that frame looks like a tank. If you plan on beating the crap out of it, and there's a 100% cr-mo sticker on it somewhere, go for it. How severe is that rust near the top of the seat tube?

for the frame,you can do the painting to make it great.for the wheel ,you need to get clearly for the size.so than you can buy the correct wheelset.
