Any auto parts store will have what you need.Try NAPA.......Summit even sells a pretty cool looking blue set of hoses for the G-Body as well.

.. I'd get the stock shaped black hose if still available... looks better... 26" long... got about 5 bends in it to clear everything and get where it's going... lasts a long time... 15-20 years...

i don't get why people buy anything but the proper replacement hose.. it looks better and fits right, and is generally about the same price.

Whats a good hose to run with electric fans? Dont really need one with so many bends in it. More of a straight shot would look better.

Then get some brass tubing and radiator hose with some bends in it and make your own. Or try aluminium tubing. You could maybe have it bent at a good muffler shop if you needed bends in the tubing. Now that would be different.

.. I like the black rubber hoses because they don't show up much and distract the eye from seeing the engine...

there's nothing wrong with being different, but a nice stock hose just kind of visually disappears and just flat out works. its beauty is in it's simplicity.

Do anyone know if that hose is for a big block or small block TA? I'm heading to O'Reillys this morning and want to make it as simple as possible for the parts numbnutz behind the counter to find me a hose that will work.

Actually...looking at it closer I don't think it is going to work as it won't clear my AC compressor.

I'll just get a stock replacement upper hose.
