Choke heat pipe is what it is called. Ramses I made my own, tubing bender and flaring tool will be needed, pretty easy, or you can look on eBay or contact Russ Austin, he might have one, others might chime in as well, she's looking pretty good!

They have no picture, and they say that is for 1960-61, but my car is a 1962, not sure if this tube fit my car..

Anyway i have found a kit to make my own tube, i will probably order that..

That line isn't running to the choke coil spring from what I can see.  Are you sure its not the distributor advance line?

Maybe you can see them better on this picture,

But according to "62 driver", tube from 61 or 62 are the same, so i will probably order one from '61

You probably should check with them before ordering that what they have fits.    This is a picture of the one I bought from them for mine.   As you can see mine has an AFB and the the Rochester choke is different than the Carter.

I'm curious....why is a vacuum line running from the manifold into the choke spring housing?  The purpose of that tube is to deliver heat to the spring so it slowly expands during cold starts.
