I don't think you can get them new anymore. I would just give it a fresh cut and flare the end slightly, and slip a length of transmission cooler hose (usually good to 300 PSI) over the end. Then you can get a barbed fitting for the other end.

Had a similar setup on my T-bird for years before I went to a different cooler setup.

Yeah... I don't think the time spent trying to get a new one (or make a new one) is worth it. Just cut it where it was bent and add a length of rubber hose, needless to say, it must be appropriately rated for use with high pressure, hot oils. Any hydraulic fittings store can supply the hose and hardware.
