My car is currently SORN and not working - am I legally allowed to sell it?

My car is currently SORN. It passed the MoT in June 2017 but the exhaust fell off in November. Am I able to sell it on eBay? If so, how can a buyer legally get the car home?

Declare everything and you can sell it. But the buyer then has to trailer or flatbed it home, and then has to either insure, MoT and tax it, or put it on his own SORN.
