Are there any modern single DIN head units that look like 90’s era head units? 

This is about as close as I could find, by this reminds me more of early 2000’s: 

Kenwood KMM-BT525HD

Any other suggestions? I am going to be running an amp so it will RCA outputs.

Looks like 1990's unit?  You mean with a cassette deck?

Is there any reason not to run a used era correct one?  Or are you looking for integrated bluetooth capabilities?

That Kenwood doesn't look '90s at all.

This is what I have waiting to go in one of my late '80s, early '90s projects.

Continental/VDO, Clarion, and Blaupunkt all offer some decent "retro" units.

^those look great. I googled the model numbers for the Clarion units, looks like the FZ102E (2ns pic) is an older European model that I can't find for sale online, and M508 (3rd pic) is a current marine unit that retails for $190.

 

The bottom is a just released blaupunkt bremen sqr 46 that is available for pre-order at €450...

 

Top Continental is a VDO TR7412UB worth €122.

Yeah I want Bluetooth and I don’t want a bunch of other stuff to “make it work”, I just want a head unit.

Well that’s why I said it more looks like an early 2000’s unit. 

Just FYI this is a late 90’s Alpine unit when the larger LCD Screens started showing up.
