Back story about this hose set:
I started collecting dozens of verified original production 1965-66 hoses over the last five years for a customers restoration. I was lucky to find one out of all the ones I collected that looked good enough to put on my car. When I had some friends asking me for good originals for their cars I started to think I should reproduce this hose so I started to do some research. I found the amount of ribs on the outer wall varied greatly as did how pronounced the ribs were. After examining all the hoses in my collection and other verified originals I had the most common rib configuration reproduced in small quantities. There is a consensus among top restorers that the ribs designate the vendor and or date of manufacture. We cannot verify this but it sounds probable.
