Side mount vs. rear mount radiators

I have a 2000 DSDP today and looking to upgrade over the next few months. Mine is a side mount radiator which makes it much easer and accessible to work on and service (I do most of all my own maintenance) as well as aid in cooling and would like my new one to be the same setup.

Looking at used (new to me) DS and Ventana's and see that the Ventana I looked at was a rear radiator. Are they all the case or was it offered in a side cooling? If so, what engine combo on both the DS and Ventana?

I believe all Vantana are rear, all DS are side. If wrong, I am sure someone will be along with clarification.

Thanks Vince. Kind of the conclusion I had come to, but figured I would throw it out there in case I'm missing something.
