proper radiator clamps

What is the correct radiator hose clamp for a 1929 Durant D63? The best I can tell from some pictures is the double wire type with a slotted screw. The last car show people didn't like my worm drive industrial clamps I stole from work.
Thank You

Re: proper radiator clamps

I believe that the wire type clamp is correct for our era cars. How about red rubber radiator hose in place of the far easier to obtain black? And I think it should be the type of hose that is canvas reinforced (think fire hose), rather than just straight rubber, and definitely no accordion type universal-fit hose. It's funny how judges seem to focus on what type of hose clamps you're using. It's mentioned several times on shows on the Velocity channel. Ross
