Do you want an OEM or the shorter one like the link has? They are all
tube-fin type. I have replaced a few of mine & they are all 134A type, as
in smaller tubes than the R-12 kind.

It's doing great. The 95/96 condensers aren't a drop in for the 90 radiator frame. They will require some modifications to get them to fit. You can get good performance with a normal retail replacement with the 6mm tube/serpentine type condenser they sell at the chain stores. If you want cold air in a hot climate with r134a, don't reuse the stock tube and fin condenser.
