Sorry, "15," but I've gotta disagree with that. When a dealer takes a car in trade, the name on the title must match the name of the person representing the car, or he must have a written statement of attorney of record for the owner named on the title. Otherwise you could steal a car and its title and misrepresent it. In this case, even with a receipt showing a valid sale, with the title in the previous owner's name, the only way the dealer could complete the transfer is if this person could get the previous owner to the dealership to verify it. And even then, I don't think any reputable dealer (maybe Al's Used Car Lot would) could accept it. It's really the chain or provenance of the title that matters here.
