Classic cars evoke a sense of nostalgia and admiration, not just for their timeless design but also for the mechanical marvels under their bonnets. However, restoring a classic car to its former glory involves more than just mechanical repairs; it’s about preserving authenticity and capturing the essence of a bygone era. At Samco Sport, we understand the importance of authenticity in classic car restoration. With our “Classic” and “Vintage” finishes, we offer enthusiasts a way to return reliability and an authentic look to their classic car’s engine bay.


Embracing Heritage: The Importance of Authenticity

Classic cars hold a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts, representing an era of craftsmanship and automotive excellence. Whether it’s a vintage muscle car, a timeless European classic, or a retro Japanese icon, each vehicle carries a unique legacy that deserves to be honoured and preserved. However, maintaining authenticity can be challenging, especially when it comes to components hidden within the engine bay.


Traditional rubber hoses, while functional, often detract from the aesthetic appeal of classic cars, with their worn-out appearance and limited durability. This is where our “Classic” and “Vintage” finishes come into play, offering enthusiasts the opportunity to enhance the authenticity of their classic car’s engine bay while ensuring reliable performance.

The Vintage Finish

Our “Vintage” finish is designed to replicate the appearance of traditional wrapped and textured hoses found in classic cars from the 1920s to 1940s. Featuring a matte black surface and a textured finish, these silicone hoses seamlessly blend in with the vintage aesthetic of classic engine bays. The subtle detailing, including moulded ridges and markings, adds to the authenticity, giving enthusiasts the satisfaction of a period-correct restoration. In addition to its authentic appearance, the Vintage finish offers all the performance benefits of modern silicone hoses. Engineered to withstand extreme temperatures, pressures, and environmental conditions, delivering reliability without compromising on style. Whether it’s a concours restoration or a daily driver, these hoses provide the perfect balance of form and function for classic car enthusiasts.

The “Classic” finish is available in all colours but is most effective in black. These hoses complement the timeless design language of luxury cars while providing the performance and reliability expected from Samco Sport.
