The car sat for a year changed oil and have driven 50 miles or more it still ticks its a very low milage car for the year can it be fixed without tearing the top end apart I am skilled enough to do the job but if I don't have to tear apart I would be very happy I am in this car cheap and its mint want to keep profit high if possible thanks

Most likely you will have to replace the lifters. They are varnished and frozen from your description.

Lots of issues with the lifters in this motor. Remove them and check them for varnishing.

Nope, they would have to be removed. It would be a good idea to replace them if you have them out.
