The price on this older vehicle really depends on its mechanical condition and overall appearance. Even if this 1986 Toyota Corolla w/ 200,000 miles on it was in great condition, I would only offer something like $750. Chances are the seller is pricing his car high hoping to get what he/she is asking for it, but most likely they know that a lower bid will probably come in. I don't trust the smaller, 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine that I believe this car has to last much longer, but I could be proven wrong. Good luck.
