Standard contract for leaving a deposit?

I'm planning on engaging in a private party sale this week, and may be required to leave a deposit. If I leave a deposit what can I ask for in return that guarantees the seller won't run with my money? He's asking for a 10% deposit to be wired to him.

So is there a standard contract to stipulate that upon arrival, if the car was misrepresented, that I get my money back? Does something like this hold up in court? I'm flying across the state to go see it this week.
