Default Windshield drain hose

Does anyone know who sells the hose that slides on the metal drain tubes at the bottom of the windshield frame for a 37 sedan? I looked at Macs, Drake, and some others. No luck. Thanks Bruce

As I recall, the hoses are 1/4" I. D. and are thin wall, black rubber. Buy at any auto parts store.

Think that is something you would buy local.

Yep, I used clear tubing on mine, available in many places.

As others have said, it's tubing. vacuum tubing looks correct and works. Napa or others have bulk.

Radiator overflow tubbing is thin wall. Most auto stores only have it in 2-3 ft. Lengths. Get two and go by the vacuum fittings and get a splice to make it longer

Make sure that the metal drain tubes in the body are good and clean. In the past I have found them to be plugged up.
