The one I linked to will drop in - it is a parallel flow design replacement.

Honestly, as long as it's not contaminated by black death, the original condenser is so big it's not necessary to get a parallel flow unit. Flush the old oil and crud out of all the hard lines, Evaporator, and condenser. Then replace the dryer/accumulator.
It is big, but those tube/fin units just aren't efficient enough.

One thing to keep in mind about replacement compressors is the oil it ships with will be of unknown pedigree and contaminated with water. I always dump it out and re-fill with fresh clean oil from an unopened container
Great advice
