Now I really knew these things were worth something and I put it in my watch items because I'd really like to have one, and maybe, just maybe, no one has spotted it!
WELL NOT THIS TIME!
Keep on the watch for those old cloth gas hoses---I want one--just not a $536 one! LOL

I had it on my watch list also. I had not gone back to check the selling price. Wow.

Wasn't there one that sold about a week ago. Maybe same seller and it brought about half this price. Found it. Different seller but half price.

That is one of the nicest ones I've seen on ebay. [Tom must have been OUT OF TOWN!]

I bought the earlier hose for 250.00 with a BIN. It is a little smaller in diameter that I wanted but is in perfect shape and I actually hate to use it outside on a project.

What happened to the one I "reluctantly" sold you for $100.

And I appreciate the sale.It is proudly displayed in my den on the Wayne 60 that I purchased from Kevin. It isn't going anywhere. I still have not figured a way to get the hose end all the way on the hose. The steel core may have to be reduced in inner diameter to allow the hose end to stay on when the outer piece is screwed on to it. I just need a couple of other hoses to put outside on my country store/Gulf station. I have 4 or 5 hoses in various conditions and all are different sizes except for two. LOl Dave
PS Seems like this photos from Imageshack are getting smaller.

I would pay good money for a nice one the right length to fit a National Simplex, if anyone has an extra.

Old cloth hoses have been in the 250-450.00 range for about two years now on ebay. Have watched many on ebay go for big numbers and watched this one also. Have the larger ones for the old visibles and the smaller ones for pre-visibles.
Petrohaulics does a really nice job with older hose he has found with the metal insides. Sometimes I use his hoses instead of the older ones on the restorations, they are also not WHITE. He has also been able to put my old ends from the bad hoses on his new old stock stuff. Looks great and give the same old feel.

I still have the three hoses discussed in this thread, including the cloth one.

I've left them sit because I'm still pondering how to ship the beasties, but they're all available.

So are you getting them from someone, or are you pondering for sale?

Craig I have them, part of a crazy hoarder family clean-out I did over several years. Almost everything I've ever posted on here is from the same house and shop, and there's more still.

The Delmar rubber hose is HERE.

The Republic Reprene hose is HERE.

The shipping issue is why I haven't done anything with them. How does one affordably ship a hose that will only curl so far?

IF it can be straightened, ship in carpet roll core [cardboard tube], PVC or ABS pipe & glue on caps or plugs.
