where do i buy a 55 t bird hard top ready for paint
Your best bet would be to locate (and join) a Ford Thunderbird Enthusiasts On-Line Forum and ask any of the members where to get one and if any of them are selling one. Here's one for starters (I'm sure there are several more out there): http://www.tbirdforum.com/
Hope this answer was of some help to you! :)
