Can a person be sued for a contract that states a specific vehicle for consideration, but the person didn't receive that vehicle

Asked about 2 years ago - Jackson, MS

A person signs a contract 10-15 days before the vehicle is actually received. He doesn't acquire the vehicle in the contract as it is sold, but unknowingly receives another vehicle with a salvaged title which the lender does not notify him of nor do they change the contract to include the vin of the actual vehicle he received. He later learns of the "switch" after having problems and attempted to resolve it w/lender. They refuse to remedy the problem so he returns the vehicle and they are now suing for breach of contract. Can he successfully fight this?
