Are there modern replacements for the radiator hoses?

Parts xref says Napa NBH 7694. It looks like the correct shape for the upper and since Ross and Randy provided numbers that cross to the same I would expect it is proper. Lower two on the trans cooler are just short straight lengths so shouldn't be too hard to find a hose the correct diameter and cut off what you need.

Lower hose for a 55-6 stick shift is listed as a 20610 but you would have to verify it didn't need trimming at one end or the other to fit correctly.

It seems to me that I had to do that with the one that's on the car now, which has been there for decades. It's still soft and pliable but has a segment cut out near that radiator with one of the emission devices in its place that messed with the vacuum advance. It's not been required for years and as I about to try to start the car again after all these years, off it goes! I ordered a hose last night so will trim as needed.

By the way, what temperature thermostat should be used on a 352?
