I looked in my files and couldn't find the receipt from the parts store. The guy is out of business, so i can't ask him.
I went on RockAuto and found lots of choices. The shipping is going to be more than the 12 cent part.
Those don't look like "wrap around", but I may be mistaken that the seal I was given was a wrap around. It may have been a square-cut like those in the link. All I remember for sure is that it wasn't fussy, I didn't use any additional sealant, and it didn't/doesn't leak.
If you use the square-cut, it goes on top of the thermostat, and be sure that it is a little "proud" of the surrounding surface so the metal hose fitting compresses it. You'll be fine.
