ahh ok. Those era birds rode so damn nice, loved some of the kooky editions they had. I remember the Bill Blass Lincolns LOL
 
Yeah, that T-top car looks fairly mediocre as far as options (with exception of the T-tops).  I don't see power windows, cruise, sport cluster, etc.  You could add T-tops to just about any 78-79 T-bird, regardless of options.

If it's like bringing cars into Canada you need a broker to do the paperwork. Might not be too expensive. It'd be worth looking into if you're seriously considering buying.

Salvage can be for a number of reasons...for example if a car is stolen and the owner is paid off for it's value and then the car turns back up, or if it's totalled and the owner buys the car back and fixes it, it will have a salvage title. 

Are these cars available to the public to buy?

I bought my jeep from copart, paid $1,050 for the car, and about $650 for the transaction fee. Be aware of the buyer's fee rate, it can be either fix or a percentage of the price.
My car had a clean title, just a rod stuck out of the block.

It depends on the state.  I'm assuming it's governed by state law.  On copart's website, they have a map of the US, showing which states allow public buyers, and which require a broker. 
 
Definitely investigate the fees.  You have to pay a fee to join ($200 I think).  Then, you have to pay a fee for the car that you win.  For my '79 Cougar, my winning bid was $250.  I had to pay another $250 in fees (and taxes maybe), so my drive-out was $500.

That just looks like a trunk flipper with its insert missing.

Taillights weren't too bad but did have scuffs scratches and crazing
Had power antenna and 8 track. Let me know if you need something.
and yes it was another cold cold morning... I think around 17 degrees..

Man Josh, you're killing me with all of the Tbirds and Rancheros you're finding up there.  I can't find anything decent in the yards around here.  Suggestion.  Those 15" steel wheels are getting harder and harder to find.  Down here, we can get $100 for a set of decent ones.  May not be the same up there?  And probably not worth it on Ebay, with shipping and everything.  Figured I'd mention it.
 
 
What's the condition of the emblem on the header panel of that Tbird?  Text me with a pic and price, next time you're out there.
