It could be many things, unfortunately and without hearing the noise first hand or being able to do some basic diagnostic tests or be able to drive the car, its hard to say what the source of the noise may be. The exhaust flex pipe under the engine has problems with the heat shield rusting away, the catalytic converters fail and rattle. It's impossible to say what the noise is without hearing it first hand.
