I think you must want a strain that OVERPRODUCES the threonine, either due 
to altered feedback regulation or production of copious levels of a
high threonine protein.

otherwise you could use just about anything that grows on a threonine free
media :)

Have you tried the American Type Cultures Collection? ATCC has lots of
bugs which they will send you for a fee.  Their number is
(301) 881-2600
Hope this helps.
