I found the following info at http://www.degeneratepress.com/thunderbird/how_to.html#Radio: "The rear speakers are mounted in the very corners under the rear deck, right on top of the fenders. To get to them, you have to pull out the back seats so you can remove the rear deck, then pull off the rear windshield trim so you can pull off the corner deck pieces. Remove some nasty insulation and you can see the task that lies ahead of you. Only 5 1/4" round speakers fit, and I've been warned that the deck is actually curved there a bit, so to keep from warping your speakers you should mount some rubber or insulation of some kind between the speaker and the deck." Hope that helps, smileygui!
