I remember seeing similar subframes in Brazil, yet I don't remember which models featured it. You might know the Brazilian Type 3 was technically not the same as the German, AFAIK it still retained the swing-axles well into the '70s, and only the Variant II got rid of them to use the same semi-trailing arms and CV joints setup fitted to the Kombi from mid-'70s to 2013, and the McPherson struts shared with the Passat upfront.
