55 Buick special radiator hose size

Recommended Posts

IMG_20200109_122532920.thumb.jpg.6e34007ad9afbf62a948f851e5960b2d.jpgHello I just got a 1955 Buick special 4 door post about a month ago. It sat in a barn for about 10 years and I just got it running. I'm wondering if anybody knows the size (inner diameter) of the upper and lower radiator hoses and where I can get them? 

Thanks,

Covon

Hello,

 

This link will take you to a thread of vendors that you can get these hoses and much more.

And oddly enough...Rockauto carries the molded hoses you need.   I get quite a few parts for my Buicks from Rockauto.   

 

Welcome aboard!  Post a picture of your Buick.

It definitely cleaned up nicely I got very lucky. It was so filthy the red didn't even look like the same color after I washed it.
