I just bought a Brasilia here in the US myself and it appears it is going to be very difficult to source parts not chassis related. Its a Karmann Ghia floor pan and mostly type 1 suspension and drivetrain so many, but not all, 70s beetle parts will work. If anyone has a line on parts in Brazil (with Portuguese translator!) Id love to hear about it. If you look on Facebook Marketplace So Paulo Brazil, parts are cheap and plentiful! Might be worth the shipping if one could order a slug of parts all at oncemaybe

There is also a Facebook group based out of Brasil called "Variante TL SP2 Passat Karmann guia, Z do caixo, e antigos" , and "Peas de fusca e derivados a ar VW - SP" that sell parts. Some of the more frequent sellers might have more experience shipping international.

These two websites in Brazil are specialized on locally made classic cars such as the beetle and the brasilia:

www.crmpecas.com.br
www.bunnitu.com.br

I bought from both places, but within Brazil. I dont know if they do international sales. If you need help with the language let me know.
