I found something very interesting at a Pontiac Vendor: Do you think 5/32" is the correct diameter?

Thanks, Dan.

I did not find anything on inlinetube.com .

But I have found a set at Caddy Daddy

https://www.caddydaddy.com/shop-parts/a-c-cooling/hoses/vacuum/1959-1960-1961-1962-1963-1964-1965-1966-1967-1968-1969-1970-cadillac-vacuum-line-hose-kit-7-colors-8-pieces-reproduction-free-shipping-in-the-usa.html

and another at USA Parts Supply.

Both describe the product with meager words. But for 30 Dollar one could give it a try. However I wonder what is the correct diameter? USA Parts Supply does not specifiy it for the set but offers an assortment of different diameters just below the set... On my car a wild mish-mash of hoses can be found, probably whatever was at hand here in Germany. The Master Parts List is also of little help.

Well, they wouldn't probably exist anymore at all but for the farmer who saw value in them when they had none.

Supposedly, he drove the cars that are in the barns into place. They are covered in dirt, dust and pigeon crap though. It is really hard to get an accurate idea of their values. If he really wanted to sell them properly, he should pull them out, pressure wash them and then cover them after taking good photos of what condition they are in. Old guys like this are typically pretty hard to deal with.

What car is this? I tried and tried but I cannot identify it...  ;D Is it really a Buick?

Nils, I found the front end photo to go with this car and it turns out to be a 63 Olds Starfire.

Inline Tube seems to have color coded sets, but I have heard the quality of the color coding leaves something to be desired. 

That said, you can get generic black rolls, put some paint down on a cookie sheet, roll up the hose, and roll the hose through the paint.  This will give you a nice painted stripe.

You are right... I did not think of the idle speed-up.

I need the rubber lines.
