That was a low-end cassette player. I have the same model in my '95 Grand Caravan, and I have lots of parts for them. You can replace it with any square face Chrysler radio but you should avoid the Infinity models. They put out less bass, then it is made up in a remote-mounted amplifier or with little amps bolted to the speakers. Unlike the confusing Ford and GM systems, all Chrysler radios put out speaker-level output and will run the speakers directly. When an amp is used it is just for tone conditioning for the shape of the vehicle.
If you are "emotionally-involved" with your radio, I have used cassette mechanisms and I have new display crystals for some models. If you want to upgrade to a cd player, you are much better off with a cd / cassette combo. They are built by Mitsubishi and are very high quality. I sell a lot of them at the nation's second largest old car show in WI. The cd player without cassette is built by Alpine. Both radios have a few problems that once repaired are repaired for life. I'm a little nervous selling the Alpine models because I've run into four weak lasers over the years. I've never found a bad one in the Mitsubishi radios. That still isn't bad compared to the 100 percent failure rate on GM cd players.
