If the radiator inlet is on the drivers side look at a 70 Z-28 hose. That is what I used for my 64 Chevelle when I upgraded the radiator. The Z-28 t stat housing points like your. On my truck I used the coat hanger method. Here are the numbers I used, lower might work for you.

A member asked what radiator hoses I used. The upper is a Gates 20416, I had to shorten the end that goes on the radiator. The lower is a Gates 20584, I had to shorten the radiator end on it too. The applications are not GM, I took in a bent wire and diameters. I got them at OReilys.
