Overflow tube for radiator

63 2-door Impala 327 3-speed. I need help duplicating what Chevy did originally for an over flow tube for the radiator. The filler neck has a 3/8 hose fitting where there was probably a tube attached and routed to point to the ground. I would assume there is a clip or two to hold things in place. Does anyone have a picture of what this is suppose to look like? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I am not all that sure myself. When I got my 64 Impala back in 82, the tube was attached to the fan shourd bracket with a bit of twisted wire.

Currently, I have it stuffed between the fan shroud bracket and the radiator. First picture is mine, second (red 64) is a car I saw at a cars show).
