I would decide what price you are firm on and only tell him that after he views the car not before.
Meet in a car park if you feel unsafe.
It’s fine to get cash as long as you have counted it all and it doesn’t look fake. This is how I felt after I was given $10k cash for my car and I went straight to the bank.

It took us a minute or two to confirm the one very good fake $50 was indeed a fake. The only way I would sell something is bank transfer, which can be pretty much instant, now.
Asking what your lowest price is, is a pretty bog standard question, that wouldn’t bother me.
It wouldn’t bother me that they wanted to buy on the spot, either, plenty of people find they suddenly need a car asap.
The cash would be my only issue in handing over the car straight away.

Update on this - I think we are selling to a car yard, DH managed to negotiate pretty well and we are only about 1000-1500 less than what we hoped for. My anxiety has gone through the roof over this, with the ridiculous offers and the no shows and the rude people. DH feels that my mental health is worth more than the money we will lose. I am a bit disappointed as I was hoping to have a little extra to book a little holiday for us and the kids (we havent been anywhere in 7 years!!). We are giving it to the weekend and then will sell to the car yard.
Thank you so much for the helpful advice everyone

Sorry to hear it's been stressful OP, in this scenario selling to a dealer is probably a good option.
I've got wheeler dealer genes and treat it like a blood sport.
This is not normal and most people do trade ins.
DP can't even deal with being involved, apparently it's like watching a mini version of my Dad. If you want me to look over your ad, just PM it to me x
