it can but it would require some modification to fit.

for the 6th generation civic's 1996-2000.

they had two different looks for the front end for the united states.

the 96-98 look,

and the updated 99-00 (facelift, shown on a si but comes on every 99-00 civic)

you can do the 99-00 front end conversion for the 96-98 civic.

but you will need some parts from the 99-00 to make it work correctly.

Required 1999-2000 Parts:

All the following parts to be installed HAVE TO be from a 99-00 Civic:

- Headlights (yes, both)

- Grille

- Hood

- Bumper

- Fenders

in fact you have to change EVERYTING about the front end. The core support tabs that hold the inner flaps of the bumper cover (the two outermost grille-type clips) are too wide to accept the 99-00 bumper as a direct fit. Some people have changed the entire core support while others have just cut the mounting pieces off the new bumper.
