Suggestions on what to do with t-stat housing and rad

I have a 65 El Camino with a new radiator, problem is that the rad has the inlet on the passenger side and my t-stat housing is pointing towards the driver's side.
It has a hard and brittle flex hose on there now that I'm looking to replace but I can't find one that is a direct fit.

My thoughts are to get a swivel housing and connect it to the rad with a pretty staraight hose then use the water temp location for the heater box hose and then? Can I put the water temp sensor where there is a big bolt on top of where the water pump lives?

Any ideas on how to get this to work would be great.

You could purchase a straight T-Stat housing and move the heater hose to the intake. I don't think it is correct in the housing.
