Unless a disclaimer is sent to the personal representative, disclaiming (rejecting) the property, the property would belong to the individual to whom it was deeded. That would require changing title, along with getting insurance on the vehicle. You mention the brother is selling it- is the brother the personal representative?
The person selling the car needs to be the executor in order to have legal authority to sell it, or the rightful heir.
If the car was taken without permission then the executor would need to attempt to retrieve it, if it has not yet been "disbursed" to the rightful heir.
