    I've been waist-deep in a major resto of my wife's '95 ATX, and part of this is finding new coolant hoses. As most (if not all) of them have been obsolete for a long, long time, and nobody has replacements except for a few, we went hose hunting behind the counter behind our local Autozone, and have found hoses that are suitable replacements for the stock hoses. Obviously, they're not exact replacements, since none exist (except the oil cooler return hose, that is an exact replacement in the catalog), but I have cataloged the hoses you'll need to get (by part number as searchable by Autozone) in this handy picture.

    Upper radiator hose is obtainable, and we haven't found a suitable replacement for the lower hose yet. I'll update this post when I find it.

    I would just like to add something. I'm replacing the Heater Inlet Hose(Heater Hose #1) on my nephews car. The hose needed for the other end, the crimped end that goes to the engine is a tapered hose. It goes from 3/4s at the metal part of the hose to 5/8s at the engine. I found its part number in a different thread. Dayco B87612. Just cut to length.
