If a car has a salvaged title can it still be legally sold by a car lot?

Absolutely,a dealer can sell you a vehicle with a salvaged title. Each state has there own laws but in most states you must disclose to the consumer that the vehicle you are selling to them has SALVAGED history. The selling dealer must disclose this on the state title forms and on the BILL of SALE.If the selling dealer does not disclose this,then you have a legal rights against the dealer.

It is very difficult to by a salvaged cars. In some cases the vehicle is in good enough shape that with some repair it can be road worthy again so it is sold with a salvage title. When the vehicle is inspected and once again registered a normal title will be issued.

You must prove that it was sold to you and have the person named in the title sign it and the bill of sale. If the bike was salvaged you can take steps through your local DMV to have you renamed as the owner.

Oh yes. You need to get that title in the name of the new owner.

If the previous owner signed off on the vehicle as "parts ONLY", then that means that the title is non-transferable. When a vehicle is sold as parts only, there doesn't even have to be a title. It could just be a slip of paper stating that's how the vehicle was sold; however, if you're a LICENSED OWNER of one of the above, you can claim the vehicle as abandoned/salvaged/auctioned, ect. which you would need proof of, and then the DMV would issue you a new title in your name stating one of the above or something similar.
