They also knew my brother in-law is executor to the estate.
What they "knew" is irrelevant.
What counts is whether or not your brother-in-law got the papers from the probate court that authorize him to collect the property of the estate.
Without those papers, nobody gives him the time of day even if the car is paid off.
If he has failed to open probate on a reasonably timely basis and his failure costs the estate money in storage fees that it should have had accruing, his failure could give you the option of opening probate yourself, getting appointed as representative of the estate and result in him being penalized for misfeasance.
If you want to take things that far, consult an attorney of your own.
