    I still disagree that they were original to production. Not that it proves anything one way or another but I've never seen an original one on a low mileage car. i have seen gates brand red hoses that were era correct. id like to see a picture also.

      That looks like the gates hoses ive seen. Construction and color(least on this screen) looks 'right'. I can be convinced, but haven't been so far.

    I never really paid any attention to this particular and important detail until a few years ago. There should be some senior A'ers on the VFF that would remember whether they saw factory red hoses from when they were doing restorations in the sixties and seventies. A lot of A-parts and surplus stuff was abundantly around at the swap meets back then. It was the early brass car parts that we had on our parts list, that stuff was flying out of the swap meets. If any one can solve the hose mystery - my money is on Mark - just tell him the red hose had the Ford logo on it! lol You're awesome Mark - PLEASE share with us what you turn up. p.s. my dad had a shop full of A-Z, however, he went to the neighborhood auto parts store and bought hose and gasket material and made his own. It wasn't about the money for him, it was just how he did it.

        red stripe on hoses
        by Art Ebeling
        Has anyone tried to touch up the red stripe on the radiator hoses? I have had my hoses on and off a couple of times and the red stripe has gotten worn thru in places.

        Found a Cheap Radiator Filter
        by Tom Wesenberg
        The local surplus store has these 2" strainers for 95 cents.
        All I have to do is cut the wire off both sides, and it will make a perfect filter for the top hose.
