You can also go to the Thunderbird Registry http://tbird.info/registry/menu.php and search by paint code. That should give you some idea of how rare certain codes are.

If you have the original 4100 carburetor there are two tubes at the top front of the air horn. You can use a small funnel to pour gas into either one. That will fill the front bowl.
