Why do you want such an old car?
Why a small car, for less fuel consumption?
Do you drive much? If you don't fuel mileage is not as great a factor
in driving cost.
I wouldn't get that old a small car, unless it was a Toyota or Honda.
Small cheaper cars tend to get less maintenance than a mid sized car.
If you don't drive much I recommend a slightly larger car, say next size
up. Say Camry, Accord.
A private sale from a careful driver can be best. Cars that old tend to
be dumped into auction and picked up by small independent sates lots.
BTW my legs don't fit the Corolla previous to the current one, which
have a telescoping steering wheel. My knees strike the steering wheel.
Even with that I would want to go on a long (100+ mile) drive with one.
It's a town car.
