Thanks everyone for the information. I'd been looking for a new gas cap, too, and PackardParts.org site lists them. Now I need new keys for the 55 400, or new locks and keys all round. Hope you can be as helpful on this item, too.

Update: it's still missing. Is it worth replacing? Longer paint life on the hood, less noise, or?

'55 400. Needs aesthetic parts put back on, and electrical system sorted.
'55 Clipper Deluxe. Engine is stuck-ish.

Other than helping to protect the hood’s paint from heat, another reason for the pad is to lessen the drumming effect that larger, flat sheet metal pieces have.

Good idea, I'll look into it sometime.

I bought one of Dwight Heinmullers's pads, which appears to be the original material, though for some reason I had to trim it a bit. In the end, I decided to wrap it in some fabric mesh material like you use in a garden. That kept it together much better, it's black but not shiny, seems to be appropriate. I also found that the spray adhesive (3M 90?) that Dwight recommended worked well but I was only able to purchase it mail order. I should have bought two cans but did not, so when I ran out had to use some of the stuff I could get at the hardware store, 3M 77 I think. Even with two cans worth I should have used more. I'll take a picture later and post. The pad does help absorb sound and makes freeway driving more pleasant.
