This is the fill neck seal in the trunk. I've checked all the usual sellers. A part number search comes up empty.

I think all information relating to inner panel is what you might be looking for.

I looked up those numbers, but didn't find a seal. I thought it would be available. I'll just make one. Thanks.

Misunderstood your post...the seal looks very much like the steering column seal. Probably made of closed cell foam rubber...I assume. I created a few seals very similar to what you have there but on the floor shift and E-brake on my '53 6500. I had purchased some 1-1/4" thick foam rubber at a fairly extensive hardware store in Bellingham, WA.

I made the foam seal and coated it with Plasti-Dip liquid rubber. It works.

Thanks. It looks kind of crude, but that's the Plasti-Dip. I ladled it on pretty thick,
