You might want to try the Samba classifieds for these parts. The Master 
cylinder you can get thryu a good autro supply store (remanufactured).

This part is made of unobtainium, and is VERY expensive (read $200+) if you 
find it. Just so you know, with a little work you can use the more commonly 
found (and cheaper) 68 to 71 style steering column head in your car. These are 
available on the Samba, complete with the turn signal switch. Myself and a 
couple of others have done this swap, as it's fairly easy to do. It is however 
incorrect for your car. It really comes down to a functioniong part, versus trying 
to find an obsolete NLA part. If you talk to some of the early guys (from the 
1500 club for example), they'll tell you that the early style switch is also 
fragile, and does have a tendency to fail electrically.

I believe most of these parts interchange with a beetle. But I think the turn 
signal switch is a T-3 only part (if used with the original steering column 
head and ignition switch assembly). I don't know if you've kept the car 6 volt, 
or converted it to 12 volts. This does make a difference. I hope this helps.
