If it is like the pickup, the hole on the cowl is between the choke and throttle rods.

Does the rubber tube just stick out an inch or two or does it run further down the firewall and how far down?

Here is a picture of the hose coming out of the cowl on my 1936 Ford pickup. This is as close to information that i have found as to how long it comes out of the cowl.

The drains for the coupes (and all car models, I would assume),
are in the corners, at the BOTTOM of the cowl.

Window corner drains when added were in the corners, but cowl drains were in the middle of the drain trough on all models.
