If it's small diameter hose it's a vacuum hose for the wipers or the heater. If a large diameter hose, for the power brakes.

I think its roughly 3/4 inch hose, it is plastic. Would the power brakes be coming out of the back of the Intake Manfold?

Hose is measured inside diameter, and you are probably measuring the outside. And I've never seen a hose made of plastic. Should be fabric reinforced rubber for a pressure line, plain rubber for small vacuum lines.

3/4" is a big hose, and Ford used 5/8" for the heater. The PCV system is probably a 1/2" hose, so someone might have retrofitted that. The power brake vacuum booster line might be as large as 3/8".
