Yes, there are companies out there. Anyone take a picture of the one at Knott's last year? Man, it was gorgeous.

The kit car show at Carlisle, PA is coming up in late May. If traveling to that is an option, you might find something there.

I haven't been to it yet, I'm planning on going this year. If it's anything like the Knotts show, I don't think I'll be disappointed

My family has a ton of 55 - 57 Tbirds and I can tell you that (after helping to restore several of them) your friend can pick one up and restore it for not much more than the Regal Tbird can be built for. The last 56 my dad found in the paper was $2000 (not running of course). Just like the Mustang, there are junkyards dedicated to Tbirds of that year as well as parts places like Larry's Thunderbirds. A real one will be worth more also.

I completly agree with P.J., build a real one unless your doing some crazy thing like racing it.
