Try Joel Mitchell in WA state,
he seems to part alot of cars up there and may have done an early one.

Subject: [T3] Wanted: Rear Brake Cylinders for '63 Notch - URGENT

I'm in need of a pair of rear wheel brake cylinders for a '63 Notch. The VW 
part number is 311 611 067. These were used on Notches and Type 34s, 
VINs 76,300 to 221,974, which is all of MY '63 except for the first ~1000 
cars. Type 3s came with 4 different generations of rear backing plates and 
wheel cylinders; this is the 2nd generation. Generation 4 covers all Type 3s

'66-on, plus '65 Notches and Ghias.  

I only need the steel castings, but complete or incomplete cylinders are

I don't care about condition. Good smooth bores would be nice, but if I have

to sleeve them, I will. I'm hoping that one of you has, or had, a parts car
that VIN range. Please email me with a price, and the condition, if you have

a pair.  

I need them because I screwed up and didn't realize that early rears were 
different. In the process of rebuilding his brake parts, I sent a customer
late cylinders to replace his early ones that were pitted, without noticing
there were some small, but important, differences. Then I foolishly recycled

the old cylinders. Now I need a correct pair to get him going again. He's 
trying to keep his Notch original and I don't want to be the one who ruined 
that effort.  

ISP shows this part, but lists it as out of stock. I'll check with them, but
not too hopeful. Lots of places show the C version, which works for all the 
later years, but doesn't work with the other '63 parts.
