    For those that used a non-GS400 radiator with a 455 transplant in a 1967 Special, Skylark, GS, wagon, ie a standard style aluminium or brass/copper/OEM radiator with a straight outlet on the top of the radiator...what hose do you use for the top hose? Here's a treat...

    Have an after market al 455. Forget who made the al radiator but can check if you want. Think it was griffin.

    I just used a universal flex hose. It does the trick and I’ve grown used to it.

    Thanks - apparently Goodyear changed their hose name to Continental Elite.

    I have a 65 with 455 and cross flow radiator. I was able to use the stock 300 engine crossflow radiator hoses. I believe the 67 will be the same if using the crossflow radiator.

    Goodyear spun off its Belts and Hoses biz into Veyance Technologies about ten years ago, then Continental bought Veyance a couple years ago. For the most part it’s the same people, plants and products.

    Good to know! Is there a difference between Continental and Continental Elite?

    I just used the 340 upper hose. I don't remember having to do anything major , maybe cut an inch off each end. I eventually just had the elbow added to use the GS 400 hose.
