If it starts and runs, it's not seized. Does it quit running at the end of the driveway.

No it runs

Have a manual oil pressure test done, just possibly a bad oil sending unit.

So would it be a small or large investment to repair?I was advised to sell...???

If it's only a sending unit, it would be a small issue. If the oil pressure is bad, get rid of it or replace/rebuild the engine.
