1955 Olds Radiator Rubber Strip on top bracket above radiator

Does anyone know where to find the rubber piece that is stapled to the top of the bracket above the radiator on the 1955 Oldsmobile? I suppose it's purpose is an (insulator) between the bracket and the hood.

I haven't seen a reproduction part advertised anywhere in years. Most just leave it off along with the cardboard splash shield that lies near the bottom of the radiator that dissolves soon after the car loses it newness. Please post here if you find a vendor.others would like to know also..... Tedd

I don't know where to get a new replacement, but if you work carefully, you can us the old one as a template to cut a new one from a piece of flat rubber. It's presence helps to keep the air flowing correctly through the radiator.
