What caused this failure?

Just a guess. Pretty low miles for the age. Short trips, not getting warmed up long enough to evaporate built-up moisture inside the engine. Rust sets in, wearing rings and increasing blowby which increases moisture buildup in vicious circle of destruction.
Wow, that is less than 3000 miles a year!
