I've seen multiple styles listed for sale online. I see you have an 80 as I. Here is a pic of where mine are located. Don't look at the mess of wires. Those have all been tidied up.

Maaco near my work & a few others in my area actually can do that nice of a paint job if you know who to talk to & pay accordingly.
You may even find that style of hood bumpers in the help section at local auto parts stores as they were a common style, wouldn't hurt to have new anyways. There is also a 3rd bumper at the center of the windshield cowl, which needs occasional lube not to cause a squeak that sounds like it's coming from your dash.

I searched for 2 years for a squeak coming from the dash area on my 79 until I just read your comment about the need to lube the 3rd hood bumper at the rear of the hood. It took me 30 seconds to fix a squeak that has annoyed me for ages. You are a genius!

Phillip & Steve, glad I helped & I mentioned because so many don't know that while it is common knowledge to others. While I did figure it out all om my own in the early 90's before internet, (silicone grease for T-tops squeak issue) a simple google search or question post here would have got a quick answer. As with many of life's small annoying problems , it takes far less time to fix than talk about.
Here's a 2004 post:: https://www.elcaminocentral.com/showthread.php?t=2726
Forums are here partly so those of us who know or figured things out the hard way can spend more time enjoying their elky's & less fussing with it.
Please do a search first & then ask here if you don't find an answer.:beer:
