What might this be called and where could I find it. The fitting on the intake manifold that connects to the bypass hose. It appears to be brass/bronze?

Well, you can order one form NPD for $20 or so. I tried finding one at the hardware and the Auto parts store and no luck. They had straight ones but none with a 90 degree bend like the original. I'm gonna see what i can find at the swap meet this weekend.
BTW, it's a 1/2" NPT thread with a 90 degree bend for a 5/8" hose. Good luck.

I've looked in NPD's catalog and do not see one. I am probably not looking in the right place though.
BTW what is the part called.
Thanks

Are you talking about the thermostat housing?

Sorry, $14.81. I'm looking at page 107 of their 2000 edition catalog in the heater/defroster section. Part#18599-1

As far as I know, it's just called a heater hose fitting (BTW the bypass hose goes from thermostat housing to water pump). Don't have an NPD catalog here at work, but it should be in there, as you can get one from most any Mustang shop. I bought mine from Sacramento Mustang, but don't recall what I paid for it (and probably don't want to *LOL*).

NPD calls it an elbow connection
