Where can I get the foil insulation under my intake?

I have a 440 engine out of a 77 New Yorker. When I was cleaning it up this weekend, I found some foil insulation between the intake manifold and the block. It is not reusable. I've called the local dealers and shops, but cannot find the stuff. Does anyone know where I can get it?
I know a lot of people throw it away. I did too, on my 73 Charger but had vaporlock problems when running it. I eventually had to change out the intake to an aftermarket one. I would like to just replace the foil on this one if I can.
Thanks for the help!
Sid

May I ask why you are concerned with replacing it? I'm not familiar with Mopar stuff so I can't help you, but if its a basically stock 77 New Yorker I would just do enough to keep it running and not sweat the rest.

I am cleaning up the engine, and I ruined some of the foil in the process. I want to pull off the carb, intake, valve cover gaskets to clean & paint the engine. The engine runs fine now, but I'm concerned that if I take the foil off and don't have any insulation there, the engine will overheat. I have a 73 Charger that I restored, and I took out the foil. The car would stall out when it warmed up. I could go maybe 2 miles with it-then it would vapor lock. I don't want that to happen with this engine.
