It depends on the exact language in the will.
For example- if it says any interest in old car-(described)-he would not get the new car.
if it says-any interest in any car owned at my death-then yes.
You should have an attorney review the will and advise.
If all of the beneficiares agree to give him the car-the probate attorney and draft a beneficiary agreement.
The answer given does not imply that an attorney-client relationship has been established and your best course of action is to have legal representation in this matter.
I think the language you quote is pretty clear. The car identified doesn't exist, so that gift lapses. You don't substitute another car for the one described. The car that does exist, unless gifted by another bequest, becomes part of the residuary estate and goes to the person identified in the second clause that you quoted.
