Default Radiator hoses for 1935 ford

Can anyone recommend a source for radiator hoses for a 1935 Ford. I have tried many of the usual sources an all seem to be out of stock. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Do you have a stock engine? Someone is making a hose for the 35-36 with a later engine with the hose connection in the center of the head.

Jack, Napa sells straight radiator hose by the foot. Just figure out the inside diameter(s) and total length you require.

I purchased a set of red line hoses for my ‘36 Phaeton from Joes - good fit, although lower hoses elicited the usual profanity trying to bend the unbendable into a too small space. Note that upper hoses went in without modification while both lower hoses required trimming prior to application of profanity.

Jacques, Next time that job comes up, simply disconnect the front motor mounts and lift the engine sufficiently to angle a hose onto the inlet/outlet. Then as you lower the engine, that hose knows where it's going. Do one hose at a time, orient the clamps to convenient positions, and while you're at it, replace your mushy old motor mounts.

I like to use " sil glyde" on hose installations, slides on easy and comes off without a fight years later. Napa brand name, I suppose there are others similar

From that name, it sounds like silicone, and there isnít anything better for rubber.
