So Cal LA area, 2001S for sale, engine has issues

I am looking to sell my 2001S. 169K miles. Los Angeles area So Cal. Major overhaul 30K miles ago, including IMS replaced. Engine has issues so I'm looking to sell it as is. Car starts, idles fine. Possible bearing damage. The rest of the car however is awesome. Newer fully upgraded suspension w/ROW M030 kit. Newer brakes, rotors, calipers rebuilt. Tires in good shape. Upgraded Alpine sound system. Top in good condition and operates fine. Interior spotless, carpet/seats fine. Exterior paint in good shape but nose chips, 6/10. Great project car. Full documentation. Motivated seller. If interested, pm me.

I don't know which bearings or what exactly the issue might be. There is a knock or rattle at start up, which goes away within a couple of seconds as the car idles. The oil light comes on after a few minutes of idling too. The oil light goes away at RPM's over about 1000. Other than that, the car idles fine and smooth.

is it a lifter tick problem? mine has been ticking at low idle which disappears at higher rpms. lifter tick seems like it would be cheaper to fix than ur general engine failure, might wanna check that out

I bought this car a couple weeks ago.
I pulled the motor. Oil pump looks ok. I'll likely use the heads from this motor and rebuild my other 3.2 with them.
