Default brake Hoses

I have a 58 coupe I'm making road worthy. Part of this is brake line replacement. On the driver's side, there is a steel line connecting to the brake hose going to the wheel. On the passenger side there are two flexible hoses. The first goes from the steel line and is hooked to a second hose going to the wheel. I think the second hookup is the correct one, but looking for the parts in various catalogs, I see only the single hose going to the wheel. Which is correct and is there a parts illustration or picture I can access? Thanks.

When I replaced all my brake lines last year, I used one hose instead of the two original ones (each side had two... it was very strange) on my '58. Run a search on my posts, and you'll find the photos of how I did it.

But if you are looking to be factory-correct.... dont bother looking at my photos!

found the photo! I made a bracket to support the hose, and attached to the frame with a couple self-tapping screws. A rubber grommet was installed where the line goes thru the old shock mount.
