Genitive case and word order (indirect objects)

Πουλάω το αυτοκίνητο - I'm selling the car Το Πουλάω του Γιώργου - I'm selling it to George but putting them together Πουλάω το αυτοκίνητο του Γιώργου - I'm selling George's car so we have to switch to Πουλάω το αυτοκίνητο στον Γιώργο But can we do Πουλάω του Γιώργου το αυτοκίνητο or το αυτοκίνητο Πουλάω του Γιώργου ? If you add punctuation can you use Πουλάω το αυτοκίνητο, του Γιώργου ? Or do you just have to fall back to στον when there are both direct and indirect objects?
