There was never a Type R Civic released in the states;the only actual Type R's were Integras with a very limited run in '98 (white only) then a slightly wider release of the '00 and '01 models available in black or phoenix yellow. The Civic Type R was never released outside of Japan til the 2nd gen showed up but we never got one.
A day at the strip.

I'm sorry but that's not true. There are even a few around here. Google type-r EP3. They only came in two door hatchback, in blue, silver, white and black.

They are conversions then and not actual Type Rs. Japan didn't import any first gens to any country til the 2nd gen chassis.
Go over to Hondatech or ClubSi and search civic type R and you get very little in results.
I did a search but most are from the UK and outside the US or ones that are race cars but none were sold at dealerships in the US.
Post me a link since I found nothing.

I used to tease my wife about her gold Focus and this is what it reminded me of. Don't miss the gold bar at all.
