I don't remember seeing any horizontal condenser being fitted under the engine on classic Volkswagens with add-on air conditioners.

When Toyota came out with it's first van, it had the condenser under the front. Some genius at the dealership had hosed the whole thing down with asphaltic undercoating. Caveat emptor.
I guess you mean the US-spec versions of the LiteAce, of which I have only seen one in Amazon some 12 years ago. The other vans fitted with a horizontal condenser I refered to were mostly Chinese copies of the 4th-generation HiAce.
