With regards to a bill of sale, less is more. Meaning:the more specifics you include, the more you put yourself on the line for each and every thing you get specific about. Being wordy and putting a lot of verbiage on a contract, will open the door to what is implied. Folks tend to think they are being smart and protecting themselves, when in fact they are doing the very opposite.

A bill of sale for a car should be simple... list both parties names and addresses, the year make and model of the car along with it's vin #. The selling price & one line that reads. "Car is being sold/ purchased "as-is" with no warranty."

A bill of sale is really only required in instances where the state requires it. In Maryland, the title suffices. And therefore the only reason I write a bill of sale, is to have the buyer sign off on the single line that says "as is".
