Hi. 
I'm just renewing my Vinyl roof. Unfortunately, the connecting Plate on the rear two side Walls rusts! The sheet between the rear Window an the tailgate. Is this sheet available as an original or a replica? Where do you get such a sheet?

What year?  AMD is starting to make some sheet metal parts for the 68-71 models.  Don't think anything like you describe though.  Other than making one to fit from sheet  metal, a western or southern junk yard with cars may be your only option.

actually yours don't look too bad just in a couple spots that i can see in the pic, if you can't find a perfect filler you may need to form metal and patch the bad sections of yours?

Finding any body panels for these Torinos NOS is tough these days, but there are still some out there.  There are also some repro body parts, like quarter panels, but overall not too much is available.  Like John says, used is usually the only option, if you can't fix what you have.  

Your Torino looks great though, I hope you are able to fix the rust.
