Last gas cap I bought for my 70 Grande around 1996 has a card board looking material as a gasket too.

Yes, But make sure the cap is vented or you still have the fuel canister vent set up installed.

look at the top of the fuel tank, In the left front corner will be connection points to the charcoal canister in the engine bays drivers side front with tube to air cleaner.

If not there the cap must be vented or damage to tank may occur and engine run problems pop up.
