Yes - Icom (amongst others I think) do the M401. Handy for places you don't want DSC such as Marinas and Sailing Club Shore Stations.

As said the Icom M410 is still available. Expect to pay around 125 quid for one.

You could also scour the 2nd hand stuff, where people have upgraded and have a working old school set to get rid of.

Is there a reason DSC would be a disqualification?

If you don't like DSC, can't you simply not use those features? The units I am familiar with allow you to ignore incoming calls; and as long as you don't send one, it's the same as a non-DSC radio, isn't it?
