Custom coolant hoses help

Hi All,
I'm looking for advice with some coolant hoses, its not an Alfa, but my Dads Replica AC Cobra kit car. He has had the car a long time, but its been layed up in the garage. We came to start the car last year, once the car was nearly upto temperature it blew a coolant hose. Looking further we have realised the hoses are in need of replacement. The person that has put the car together has used flexible hoses to do this. We want to use (what we would car proper) hoses to re do this, but we are a little stumped as to where we car get these from? The main priority is to get the car running and not the looks, the car is not a show car, but one that's used. So, please help, any suggestions as to where we can get these would be a huge help?

Have you tried the usual Google searches? There is a company that make silicon hoses that look like the original black ones but can't remember their name .. been on CarSOS! ..

But being a Cobra I wouldn't have thought you have too many choices ..


Is there an Ac Cobra (replica) forum you can ask on?

Not exactly your answer but FYI anyone interested.
I got a full set of silicone hoses for the 156 V6 from China for the cost of the cheapest bottom hose alone (eBay UK).
As a bonus they come in a range of colours. Of course I selected red. They fitted perfectly and look good.
They could very well have what you want. Search on Alibaba.com.
