    Hi dose a 78 New Yorker have insulation & the rubber pice that go’s along the front of the hood? Mine has neither. If so I would like to find it. Thanks. Photo found on the internet 32203718-1137-45C4-AFFD-68DB12A3BD99.jpeg

    Does the car have factory a/c? Which might affect the hood yoke seal, but I would also suspect that a NY would have the insulation pads?

    With factory a/c, that yoke seal should probably be there, afaik and from seeing the cars new at the dealership in 1978.

    Enjoy!

    Yes your car should have it, if it’s missing my guess it was pulled off at some point due to sagging and dirt collection after 40+ years. I got my replacement insulation along with the clips on eBay. Between 35 and $45.

    Yes that’s where I got that picture from their reproduction. They currently do not have the rubber piece.
