that looks pretty good. all i've done is draft something up on my own that has the date, sale price, and "as-is" that both myself and the buyer sign. in a legal battle it probably won't mean chit but its something...

No matter what, as long as you have it on paper with all the necessary info and both parties sign it, it'* a contract, and it will hold up in court. It doesn't matter if it'* something you just draft yourself.

In addition to the buyer/seller info including addresses, I've put the VIN, color of the car, year, make, model, price, date sold, and odometer reading pretty much everything that DMVs require on a Bill of Sale.

I've never used anything fancy and have sold quite a few cars over the years. All I do is something like this:

I, (buyer'* name here), am purchasing a 1999 Pontiac Bonneville SE from Mark XXX in the amount of $2,900 on 5/21/07. VIN: 12345678901234567 with no warranty express, written, or implied. The car is in as-is condition. A deposit in the amount of $500 was issued to Mark XXX to secure the car for final pickup on 5/25/07 at which time the balance is to be paid in full via cash or cashier'* check.

Mark'* Sig
Mark XXX
Address

Buyer'* Sig
Buyer XXX
Address

That'* it. Literally written on a scrap piece of paper. I write out two copies if there'* no access to a copy machine. Nothing fancy, but works.

Agreed, I've written up 2 contracts for the same car, it was very simple, just make sure to list key information: make, model, year, VIN, mileage, colour, owner, seller, price, date and I include a witness signature.

Here in Arkansas the tag office has Bill of Sale forms available at no charge.
