Where to buy this piece to connect the ducts?

68 convt...no A/C with Astro vents.
need to find the piece that goes from the back of the duct to the dash...basically the piece that connects the bottom duct to the top. any ideas? i've been told that the part is no longer available and i would need to find it used. if that's the case what else can i use here?

Re: Where to buy this piece to connect the ducts?

I could not find these pieces anywhere myself. I had a set that came with my 68, but they were split and in poor shape. I ended up using epoxy to mate them back together. I hope they work. You might possibly be able to use some flex duct with hose clamps or zip ties to hold them in place.

It wouldn't be on a 67, Bill, nice offer tho. Piece in question looks like this:

I'm lucky enough to have one, the other side is some kinda flex hose.
68, no A/C only, used to attached the astro vents in the dash to the air intakes in the cowl.

Re: Where to buy this piece to connect the ducts?

that's the piece jim.
the pain is that GM decided to slant cut the vent...so i don't even know what the heck to use there since i'm not sure a straight piece of duct will work here.

bill thanks for the offer...i wish it did work...bummer

I could only find the hard parts... no flex hose.

Maybe a black dryer duct hose could work ?
