I have been doing some research in response to a post by Chris58 from down under in the Squarebirds Forum. I have found several sources for Tbird parts, mainly in Australia and one site also covers New Zealand. I will post them here, and if others in those two countries will tell me here who they get their Tbird parts from Down Under, I can add them to the list. What I will do is to add that information into the Advertisements Forum under an Australia/NZ Tbirds Parts Source thread. Here is what I have been able to Google and find so far.

If those of you Down Under know of other Tbird parts houses in Australia and New Zealand, please add them to this in a separate post. I will gather them up and add them together with this list.

Hi Ray, nice job gathering those and I thank you. Over here on the west coast of Oz in Perth we have limited choice indeed but one vendor I have found who will spend the time and see what they can find for you is Rare Spares. Their link is http://www.raresparesperth.com.au/ , ask for Marcus and he will do his best to help you.

Thanks ray for that. I didn't realize rubber connection was Australian, I'd seen them on eBay. Funny thing is they're only 30 minutes from my house.
Penelope I have a rarespares about 2 minutes from home, honestly they struggle with Australian stuff let alone anything else.
What things were u able to get through the Perth branch.
Thanks Chris.

Bill, thanks for the additional information. I did find them listed but when I checked their website, I did not find anything about Tbird parts on it, so I did not list it. I saw what Chris said about the one in his area. But I listed their main link and the Perth link. There was another company that I posted about not to long ago about a company that imports parts from the US and then sends them out to their customers across Australia. However, I don't remember where I put that information on the Forum. I will see if I can find it. If anyone knows where I parked it, please let me know.

Thanks, Chris. I added it to the list. I also did a search on their website for 1960 Thunderbird parts and a number of parts came up.

Phil~stubbie in Western Australia has provided us with the following information regarding America West in Western Australia. Lex ~ lexdownunder has also used him and provided me with additional information and contact information for him.

"Wayne imports cars/parts from L.A. to Fremantle by container every 6 - 8 weeks. I checked with him today & he is more than happy to have you add his name & company to the list. I used Wayne when I imported my Tbird L.A to Fremantle as well as for spare parts since then. Wayne arranged collection of my Tbird from Seattle & transporting to L.A. as well as all documentation both in U.S.A. & Australia. He also arranges for quarantine inspections & payment of import taxes etc. in Australia. His main importing (as you will see from his website) is Mustangs & Camaros but as a true car lover, Wayne will arrange collection & importation of any vehicle for clients."

Here is what Stubbie said: "I used this guy when I imported my 64 Thunderbird here to Western Australia. His price was good and he did everything. All I did was drop the car off at a place called Titan Shipping in California and picked it up from the cleaners when it arrived here in Perth. The cars are brought over in containers and he also bring parts back for people. He was in contact at all times and I never had a problem. His details are:

Mark Ravagnani ~ Griffin, in New South Wales has provided the following information regarding AustAuto ~ John DeBrincat. His email address is: austauto@hotmail.com and his local phone number is 0414 522533.

"I used his company to bring my bird over. I don’t think he has a website. I dropped him a line and he is happy for you to have his details. John brings cars and parts over in containers from California to Oz regularly. He has a contact and warehouse in LA where he stores cars and the containers are freighted from. I can recommend him as he takes great care when packing cars. He packed my car personally before it left the States and does not try to cram too many cars into a container. I’d be happy to talk to anyone about my experience shipping a car."

Norm & son Richard Shaw ~ factory on the Forum, have their own shop in Melbourne dedicated to restoring mainly old Fords, Lincolns,and T Birds. Also have Hot rod, Cadillac,Camaro and Mercury. We are presently doing a 1960 Squarebird hardtop ( white with re leather,manual trans) and a 1962 Sports Roadster. We do it the hard way using the US parts suppliers to ship direct. I have asked them for contact information for those of you who need help with repairs and parts in the Melbourne area.

She imports a lot of vehicles and parts for Bill Knighton ~ Penelope, in Perth. He says "she is an absolute expert at this and wont have an issue with shipping anything car related, I can assure you! He also said she only moves parts to Fremantle which is our port in Western Australia, so they would need to move them from there to where-ever they are. Most people in OZ are “east” of Perth and road transport is the cheapest way to move stuff. That is a good thing as the trucks all come to WA from “over east” and are always looking to backfill for the leg back east."
