What did Oshawa assembly line heater hose look like in 1965?


http://www.docrebuild.com/dr-r-web/HH-1.pdf
 
As per the link, "Factory GM blueprints show EIGHT different manufacturers as GM approved suppliers for both 5/8 and 3/4 heater hoses.
Each company used a different pattern of marks for identification."

I'm leaning towards some pattern of grooved hose for both sizes as opposed to "GM" ink stamped with squares on one and grooves on the other.

Anybody have or seen a low mileage Canadian survivor?

We have a member here with a 12,000 mile 66 Parisienne. Do you know if 66 is the same?

I couldn't say that it is but it's very useful to document nonetheless 

If somebody has a 64 matching the 66 hoses it could then be determined by bookending too

I always thought it was ribbed, non-logo hose for the heater, but then I saw a Motor Trend article on the new 1967 Firebird & it had stamped GM heater hose (which I thought was at the dealer by the roll). Maybe a pre-production press car?
