Resonable asking price for my toyota

I'm thinking about getting rid of my 88 corolla FX-16 hatchback in favor of a 95 mazda 626 (probably just wishful thinking, but the mazda's a good price). Just wondering what kind of asking price is semi-resonable if I were to attempt to sell the corolla. It has about 80k miles on it, with very little rust, but a few scratches here and there (just needs some touchup paint). I think the brakes or something needs adjusted in one of the wheels: runs hot at high (>50mph) speeds. Also, theres a slight leak in the brake system somewhere, but i can't locate it because the leak is so slow (i.e. ~1-2 fl oz in about a year). Its blue with all trim in tact. Its very clean (except for a little dust and a ton of papers on the floor and back seat - easily taken care of). I was just wondering if the kbb value (around 1300) is accurate, or since the car's so old, if thats a true reflection of what someone would pay. NADA says about 2k.

Thanks for any assistance.

It's not, he said so himself... It's an FX-16. I'd say $1500-$1800 if it's like he says.

Thanks for your help. Yeah, its not a gts. But even then, it would mean that I could probably get the mazda for little to no monetary investment.
