The original rear brake line hose about 19" long.
The original hose has threads on each end.
I'm looking for a hose that has this block (picture)on one end and is about 19" long.
Replacing the original hose and thought if there was such a hose I would eliminate a source of possible leaks, although the original never leaked.
is there such a hose that I am looking for?

That looks like a banjo fitting which doesn't have threads. How would you attach it to the rear axle? View D: Link to axle T-block.

Assuming that the hose in your photo would work if it was the right length, do you have the box it came in or know the car it was made for?

If so, carry it to the auto supply and get the friendly knowledgeable counter guy to pull out his paper catalog for brake hoses. There is a section in there that will show all the different lengths available for the style of hose that you have. I have done this at the local O'Reillys.

If any one is interested, the Dorman web site has a feature that you can
search for brake hoses by length, type of fitting on each end and sizes.
The BH38871T rear brake hose is about 1/2" longer than stock.
The threaded end is 7/16 and will need a bushing.
The T end fits the '79 Camaro rear axle brake hose bracket.
Another issue solved!
