The pads on the Thunderbird are parallel with the head while the Galaxies, etc. are stepped, low in front and tall in rear. Email at email@example.com and I may be able to help you. I have several galaxie units.
As has been said before

The galaxie pads are tilted. Thunderbird is flat. The 61 intakes have two pedalstale at the rear of the intake, and are hard to find.

I have a spare 61 intake and also have a couple 62 Galaxie intakes as well, one complete setup that I have for a 406 engine that I might sell.

I might be interested in The '61 intake. Can you please send me some pictures and what you need for it. What's the date?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text 801-897-0770

There would not be a 406 intake for a TBird, those were 390's.
TBird intake is a much different looking one with the carbs sitting flat, parallel to the top of the block.
It also has bosses for the throttle linkage on the left rear. The two rear raised pads on the 61 intake are the throttle linkage mounts, same as found on cast iron intakes. I wish i'd used that on my wagon as it would have made adapting the kickdown much simpler.
There is a date code above the thermostat opening so it's pretty easy to distinguish which year it is.
Carbs are different too
