Odd Brake Line Setup

I sold my 66 D100, and have regretted it ever since, so I'm looking to buy a 68 D100 for sale locally. I was looking at the pictures and noticed something weird. I've attached a picture: it shows a flexible hose used to connect hard line coming from the master cylinder to hard line coming from the brakes. Anyone seen a setup like this? It can't be factory, can it? The brake down lines look like the type of OD green hard line you buy at Napa, etc.

I took a pair of those flex lines off a Sweptline I parted out a long time ago, it also had them at the transmission cooler lines at radiator. I figured they were custom made also.
On H1 Hummers they do a similar set-up but braided stainless, they still fail due to cracking of the stainless hard line attached

the 63 - 68 parts book does list a flexible hose at this location, but I don't remember what years or models. I don't know about the rest of that setup.
I'm not at home where my parts book is, and I never can remember where it is on this site

I have had several trucks with that same setup. They also used them on the clutch line. They are factory.

that is how the 1 ton and up and the 4x4s came. its more HD than just a coiled up hard line. flex between body and frame is needed . its just like the clutch slave hose. same reason
