I want to make sure I have the right UPPER radiator hose for my car before I cut it to fit. The car is a '67 Camaro with a 396 and a new, stock 23" radiator. The radiator is NOT a "bent neck". I ordered a GM repro hose some time ago and cut it too short (wrong sized radiator) so I ordered a second hose and it is a different shape. The first hose comes out of the radiator and bends at about a 45 degree angle as it goes toward the engine. The second hose I recieved comes out of the radiator and has a sharp 90 degree bend as it goes toward the engine. Can anyone tell me which is the right shape or what would be the right GM part number stamped on the hose for this car?As always, thanks for the help.

I just installed new radiator and hoses on my 69 396. My hose has a 90 degree bend out of the radiator, parallels the rad for about 6", then has a ~30 degree bend to the engine. My old hose was the same way. I have Goodyear hoses.
I think what you have is correct.
