Seems a little high to me, but what are "normal" Civics in similar condition worth in your area? There was a '93 VX for sale here a while back, it had 220,000 kms, had a new o2 sensor (they are pricey on the VX's), lots of other recent Honda dealer installed parts, some rust in the back and generally crappy paint. The guy wanted $2200 for it. But when I figured out the mileage difference between my wagon and the VX, and the amount I drive, I decided that it would take a long time for the VX to pay for itself in fuel savings. You might want to do a similar comparison with a Tercel and a VX, to see if it's worth the extra expense.
