It's a common motor, really nothing to get excited about (unless built!). 98 Civic EX, stock everything, 145k miles, perfect body (no dents, scratches or anything) is definitely worth at least $3000. I would just make sure that the timing belt/water pump was done. They usually need replacing at 95K or so.
What color is the car you are looking at? 5 speed?
