Is there anywhere where I can find the text of the Spanish nusach online? I can find Sefard and Mizrachi siddurim, but from what I am aware, they vary quite strongly from the old Spanish-Portuguese version, as practiced in Amsterdam and New York (and others of which I am unaware).

In addition to Yishai's answer, you may want to try contacting the Spanish Portuguese synagogue in NYC or Mikve Israel in Philadelphia and ask which siddur most accurately records that Nusach so you have a title to look for. – Yitzchak Aug 13 '14 at 19:57
Call rabbi Marc Angel Phone: 212 873 0300 x 205, the sitar used at Shearith Israel in Manhattan. – Mefaresh Aug 14 '14 at 7:01

It seems that David Aaron deSola's siddur is the one that is commonly used today in these communities. It is available online.

The link for online access is not for a siddur, but a S&P machzor for Yamin Noraim. – Aryeh Feb 13 '15 at 11:08

There is also an S&P Birkon app for Android (free), which has Birkat ha mazon, mein shalosh, and a few other prayers.

If you know the specific text you are looking for sometimes its online (e.g. tzur mishelo, etc.).
