While on the subject of correct hoses;
what would be an appropriate hose on a oct 66 build 67 ?

Is this the first futuristic exotic in the world?

I have seen solid white stripe on one hose and solid red on the other hose on one car (which I still have as samples).On others solid red. I have anecdotal evidence of solid white on both hoses . Both solid red seems to be the most common on the early cars. The fact that one white and one red are found on the same car of some of the early cars shows the transition or phasing out of the white and going to the red. Ford was using up one before starting with another. That would be my opinion on what could be found and most common of a oct build car.Others may have different.

Thank you Bob.
Crazy, but I am just finishing details on a 1957 F bird, factory supercharged.
Black hose with about a 1/4 inch white strip.
Hose has about 3 tiny little mold lines running together.

Wonder if the oct 66 hose had little molded lines ?

I believe the answer, to this off-the original topic question, is Yes, others will comment.

Back to the original question regarding '67's

The molded line in the hoses identified the supplier of the hose in the early years. You will find different number and combinations (different widths of lines) depending on what assembly plant built the car and who was the typical vendor/provider

JD,
I wouldn't have mentioned it, but it sounded like Ford was using the same company in 1957.
I have not found any to buy.
Is there a repop hose available for the 67 cars?
