Heater hose clamps -WTB

Were all original early heater hose clamps the same as late?
I'm looking for any subtle details. I recall seeing two styles.
If so, I would like to buy a nice original set for a survivor project.

The 'tower' clamps were used in the beginning
but I have no idea when they ended and the
more normal and certainly easier to use
clamps were used. Only someone from the
"stock is" group will know for sure. Check
back in Larry Claypools' articles in the
COMMUNIQUE too.

Reproduction tower clamps are available through a Corvette site, I think it is called Zip corvette. They are nice looking but pricey.

I have a few clamps post a picture and I'll look in my stash.

I also got some from Jeff at the Corvair Ranch. He has boxes full of nice used originals as well as a limited supply of brand new clamps that appear identical to the O.E. clamps.

Jeff is easy to deal with, prices his items very reasonably, and ships items out promptly. [www.corvairranch.com]
