Correct 65 San Jose fuel filler hose?
« on: March 14, 2011, 12:31:51 AM »
Which filler hose is correct for a late (June) '65 San Jose car?

I find cloth wrap, textured rubber, and red-stripe variants. It's been 25+ years ago, but I seem to recall pulling a degraded cloth wrap hose off this car (of course, it could have been an earlier replacement).

This is a little later SJ car, but you might study the pics from the eBay listing in this thread;

One photo shows the fuel filler hose, including the white stripe.

That's a '66, unfortunately...

Textured with a faint white stripe is most typical.

Sorry to revive an old topic but two questions, would the white stripe be on an Oct 64 SJ car and two, what is the correct length of the hose?  The one from NPD is 4 inches but the current cloth one on the car is 3 inches.  Does it need to be trimmed down?

Yes I would still look for one that had the alligator texture with the stripes.
