I need one or two new rubber hood stoppers. Rather than replace all the good ones with a new set, it would be nice to find one or two that look the same, or similar, to what's already on the car. Here's a picture of one of them. Anyone seen these around on any parts sites?

Have look through the 280 hood bumper-related items at Steele Rubber:

To me, that one looks fabricated of another type of weatherseal? Normally the hood stoppers are more wedge-shaped.

Years ago, I sent Steel samples of the hood bumpers for 57-58 Chryslers they reproduced them and they should be in stock, in their catalog.
The one that's pictured here is not correct for 57-58.
It resembles more the ones used on the 63-64's.

I used to have a pretty good supply of these.
I'd carry them around to car shows and whenever I'd se a MoPar that was missing them I'd put new ones on the driver seat where he would be sure and see them!!
These are what you need, Steele made these and I got a bunch of them in return for a sample for them to go by.

Thanks for tips everyone. I went ahead and bought these from Steele: https://www.steelerubber.com/hood-bumper-60-0542-42

Hopefully I just rip the old ones off, clean the old glue and rubber off, and have the new ones stick right on without hassle.

Shouldn't need to stick them on, they have a "tang" that fits into a slot in the fender
