People in LA have VERY inflated value of the cars. 5 years ago people were giving them away. All of the sudden they get 40mpg and cost 2-3 times as much.
The car is worth say $3000 tops. Those cars usually have pretty worn motors and the car has 60hp to begin with. They also have 5 digit odometers and so people shave off 100,000 miles or so IF it even works. I would have a compression test and scrutinize the maintenance on the car. The interior condition also will affect the price. If you haven't driven a W114 before then I would have someone knowledgeable inspect it. Look for rust in the fenders and the frame. Also remove all of the floormats and look for rust.
