I know zero about Brazilian VWs, but the '74 should fit with minor alterations, as long as it's not a super beetle... that won't fit.

I once bought a 1970 standard bug on a 1957 pan...

Brazil never produced the Super Beetle so that would likely not be a problem.

... I believe all bug bodies would fit, except super beetles, would be another way of wording it Smile
