The part I recall was straight (not angled) and was used to attach the tube from the Air cleaner base to the charcoal canister. It does not need any clip as it has two tabs that lock it in place when you twist it on the hole.

That part in pic should be black.

And as mentioned, pretty sure it just screws in 1/4 turn and locks in.

Thanks for the info guys but I am using an aftermarket air filter housing where I will be punching out a hole on the bottom plate and use that angled (blue) tube, to hold that tube in place I need the corresponding clip.

Since the similar original piece never used a clip, you will need to fabricate one.  There is another plastic tube that attaches to the air cleaner assy that does have a clip.  It (clip) is bent and holds connecting hard plastic tube in the housing by pressure against tube and side of the air cleaner housing.

This is the clip that holds the tube in place, but I'm not sure it will work with yours. The one you have is designed for twisting into notches.

I remember this clip being attached to my air filter housing when I first purchased the car in 1987. I got that blue angled tube at epay where the seller stated this original Ford piece fits 70-73 302/Boss/428 I guess I got hosed I just couldn't remember that there was a straight tube for the hose from the charcoal filter to the air cleaner assembly. Now I have to figure something out on how to attach that hose. Thanks everybody for their input!
