Whoever was willed the person's belongings or appointed head of estate. If the car was specifically listed in the will, that person no owns the car. If there was no will, the spouse or partner will be in charge. If no spouse or partner, the eldest child. If no children, I have no idea.

You will mostly likely purchase the car from a spouse, a child or the estate of the deceased. Or whoever was appointed owner of the vehicle in the will.

It depends on how it was maintained by the previous owner.

The lien holder from the previous owner needs to sign off on the sale before you can change the title. If you buy the car, but still owe money on it, you can get the title in your name with the previous owner as lienholder.
