I am restoring my first VW and what a neat car. The pan is out getting sandblasted as we speak. I am trying to make it as stock as possible.

My question is this what is the difference if any between a 1964 brake backing plate and that of a 1966? I can not find 64's anywhere, only 1966 and up.

Any advice would be appreciated.

On the front, 64 is link pin and 66 is ball joint, so the backing plates are different because of that, I think rears are pretty much all the same since I remember putting late model 4 bolt backing plates on an old car so I could adjust the brakes from the backside.
If you need some, someone here will have them.

Thanks for the info when the time comes I will seek out those parts. If all else fails do you see any reason why I could not build the brakes as 66's

66 has different wheel cylinders and shoes, the backing plate should be the same though.
