Could someone please send me a picture or point me to a picture of a correctly installed hood pad for my 55.
Thanks
Bill

Are you sure it had one originally? I probably just never looked that close, but I don't remember seeing a 55 with a hood insulation. I know this is no help.

The part # for it is 2033x2
It is not centered on the hood but offset to the right and rear. You can see a little of it in the engine photo of Johannessen's car in the article in Collectible Automobile Oct. 1998

Don't know if it was original or not but, when I bought my '53 Coupe in 1976 it had the insulation; also had a couple strips of wood (ash or poplar) 1/8" thick and 2 3/8" wide wedged laterally across the underside of the hood to retain the insulation. I never saw anything like that before and, assuming it wasn't original, someone went to a lot of trouble to make them look and fit correct.

Just today I installed a new pad in my '53; intended to center it but got it just an inch or so to the passenger side.

you know, I just realized that the underside of my hood has obviously been repainted, as my car was originally blue. But here's the pics anyway, I think this is probably about the right location.
