The receipts, etc aren't really what matters. I assume you didn't do something foolish and commit to pay $100 a month to store someone's car and even more to work on the car without SOME written agreement as to how he'd reimburse you. Your rights would be dictated by that. Him dying complicates things as you are essentially a creditor of his estate pursuant to that agreement. Since we're talking just a few hundred dollars, you don't want to overspend on lawyers but you can get sued later by the estate for not doing the right thing as to the car, so see a lawyer (it would be wise to hunt down that other child first).
