YES, you have to pay off the loan. You have agreed to pay the lender X number of dollars for X number of months in return for letting you use X number of dollars to buy a car. Once the car is sold, the sale price is deducted from the balance due and you still owe that amount.

Sell it for what you owe if it is possible. Pay off the loan, get the title and sign it over to the new buyer. If you cannot get what you owe, then get as much as you can.
