Is your Packard not with power steering ?.
Looks very good room around the water pump


My car does have power steering and Ultramatic. I was replacing the short hoses between pump and oil cooler and cooler and radiator but as far as fitting over the pump casting, the short hose diameter and fit issues are the same as the long hose you are working with. Obviously the cooler was not in position but I do not remember if I unbolted the pump and sat it aside. Just remember it was a job and the space was tight trying to lever the screwdriver.

Dayco 81331 universal flex hose 16.5" long, 1.75" diameter on both ends. This might work for you. It's what I used.

You should always avoid flex hose unless it's an emergency. It can cause excess turbulence and bubbles in the coolant which may lessen the cooling ability. This comment isn't based on any studies but rather is only my own personal opinion! Also, they don't look good to me.

Molded is the way to go. Especially for lower.

With trans cooler. Needs to be flexible..
