Default what radiator do i have?

i obviously got this car with the radiator already in it. i've looked around and it doesn't look like a stock radiator for an SC400? i usually see a rounder one. i've only seen one other picture with the same radiator. the tan one is mine, the red one is off the interwebs

OEM. It's in my '93.

All OEM radiators are plastic capped, yours is a generic aftermarket radiator with metal caps. I know this because I had to replace the OEM plastic one and decided I wanted to go with a metal radiator. ArkLaTexSC, if you have that metal one, it's also a generic brand aftermarket radiator, not OEM. The OEM part also has the word Toyota along with the part number stamped on it right at the top near the upper hose as seen in the pic of the red one.

Here's an eBay link to the metal aftermarket, brand is CSF.

This is funny, because mine looks the same as the generic aftermarket one above. I've been trying to figure out where my radiator drain **** is, following various DIY instructions. I finally put the car up on ramps today to work on a couple things and had enough room to slide all the way under for a closer look. Turns out my radiator has a thumb screw drain way over on the driver's side, not the passenger side like OEM, and no hose hanging down to be able to spot it from anywhere but directly below.
