We authorize credit cards with AVS (Address Verification Software).

AVS matches the credit card number with 5 Data Points.

You may protest that all 5 do match – however the network may have wrong information. It matters not that the bill arrives at that address via the Post Office – the computer network often – I repeat often have wrong information.


After running credit cards for nearly 40 years – I will not argue with you. Only YOU can contact your credit card provider & make sure they are providing the correct information to the network used to authorize credit cards.

White Stripe Vacuum Advance Hose

First Reproduction of White Stripe Vacuum Advance Hose
Guilty Your Honor.
I am responsible.
Please forgive me.

There was an ncrs meet held in Southbury, CT in the 1980's I don['t remember the exact date. Some may remember it was the meet where Vinny G. went ballistic because the trunk mat on his 62 Fawn Beige F.I. (supposedly Duntov ex-company car driver) was removed & supposedly stepped on & the paint cracked - revealing a different color than Fawn Beige. Uh Oh! He appealed & convinced the ncrs Black Hats that he should not be penalized for the mishap or different color.

Anyway, however there was a very low mileage 1963 in attendance, supposedly owned by a Physician (a real one) who bought two 1963's and put one away. It bore a WHITE stripe vacuum advance hose. Your truly noted this mundane addition & was the first to begin marketing this infamous reproduction product. Note this was well before your truly was also the first to begin marketing the 1968-1982 headlamp & wiper door vacuum hose kit which also use a similarly sized White stripe hose.

Years later an ncrs member named Sparky, proffered that this aberration was owner inspired & probably due to someone taking a 1968-1982 White stripe hose to replace the plain Black hose. I suppose anything could have happened to this < 5000 mile Corvette. Thereafter there has been a controversy.

I will submit that group 2.420 is GM's spec for the distributor vacuum advance hose. Following are some GM part numbers from Parts & Accessories #30 manuals which in the 1960s included what today is a stand alone separate book now know as a Standard Parts Book. In these books are the listings for bolts, nut, screws, washers, fittings - including in Group 8.962 - Rubber Hose.

Munch on these entries:
1938-1964 P&A 30 page 861 Group 2.420
 - p/n 3714338 5/32 x 11/32 x 20" OL Gas Oil Resistant
 - p/n 3840486 5/32 x 11/32 x 5" OL Hypalon White Stripe

1938-1966 P&A 30 page 1076 Group 2.420
- p/n 3814338 5/32 x 11/32 x 20" OL Hypalon White Stripe

Therefore one can assume either the earlier 1938-1964 book neglected to mention White stripe on one of the only 2 hoses listed in Group 2.420 - or by the time the 1938-1966 book arrived the hose with the same p/n had a White stripe added. Note that the 1938-1963 P&A 30 book does not include the Group 8.962 for Rubber Hose. Now none of this proves that any of the Corvette had a White stripe hose however it does indicate that a White stripe vacuum advance hose was sold in service and there is no other 5/32 x 11/32 hose listed as a replacement in Group 2.420. I guess you were out of luck if you wanted to purchase a Black hose sans stripe. Boo Hoo.

If one Googles the these p/n GM wiki lists numerous supersessions. January 1965 says p/n 3840486 use p/n 3814338. More confusing - p/n 3814338 replaced by p/n 3840486 in the same January 1965 book. There are other replacements and supersessions in later 1970s books, however these other p/n just muddy the issue.

I throw myself on the mercy of the ncrs Black Hats and regretfully all others supplying this same repro part soon emulated yours truly & followed with a similar repro White stripe hose. Some brouhaha eh? PS: Right after this White stripe repro was introduced, Frank A. (a Connecticut ncrs Black Hat) told me the stripe was too wide for 1967. And Jerry K. who won a 1962 Corvette at Carlisle told me - are you ready - it had a White stripe also. Henceforth my 63 & 67 will each bear a vacuum advance hose but only half will bear a White stripe. That way no matter how you look at - its half correct and half incorrect. Phew, glad I got this off my chest.
