1963 Galaxie Heater Cover Gasket question..

Can anyone tell me if a 1963 Ford Galaxie has a Heater Cover to firewall gasket, and if so where to buy one?

My Galaxie did not come with this cover as it was in pretty rough shape. After purchasing and refinishing a used one, when going to install it there appears to be the remnant of a gasket. This makes sense as it is metal to metal and to prevent exhaust gases from entering the passenger compartment however i can't find a reference in my manual nor online.

Thank you,

Re: 1963 Galaxie Heater Cover Gasket question..

I looked in my Ford parts book and it shows that it is no longer available.

Just rebuilt my heater and put in a new heater core and seal kit for my heater and I have the same dilemma. Have not put the heater blower motor cover on yet but I have a piece of .030 thick grey gasket material which I can trace around the cover and will make a great gasket. NAPA sold me this piece 10 inches wide and however long you want it, comes in a roll. Maybe a bead of non-hardening permatex will also help. Just my 2 cents worth. Bud
