Just to update this, I keep forgetting to call.Embarrassed
There is an option on the website to ask where to buy, so I just did, specifically asking about part number 6028 or 6028R and if they are available in the US.
I'll let you know if/when I get an answer.

Well, bad news.

Part number 6028R is being discontinued. 6028 already was. I can cut and paste the email from them once I get home later tonight if anyone cares.
So Raybestos is out.
I'm going to have to go to the newer 74 and up and have them redrilled. Too tired and frustrated to try to find these Thunderbird ones anymore.

That's disappointing.  It would be even worse for a guy that owns a '72 Bird or Mark IV, no replacement rotors available for those cars now.

Yes, you did.
That's been my backup plan, was hoping I could get the Tbird rotors though. Bolt on is always my favorite way to do stuff.

Let me know when you are sure either way about the pan.

Thanks,
Russ
