Looking for a repu body !!!

I'm living in Portugal and I still have a repu, but the door panels, the hood and all the bodywork are completely corroded, full of holes. Does anyone know where can I find a complete body for my Repu?

How did the REPU cross the 'pond'?

Portugal?!?! Wow! Only body I could offer would still require a restoration...more importantly, how would it get from Eugene, OR., to you in Portugal?

For the transportation I could arrange since my father has some business in Milwaukee, but in what condition is that body you have?

Generally, without another, immediate, closer inspection: dirty over white paint, over the old original white...and some bondo in places. Newer windshield w./ newer-style rubber; no rust visible around there. Main bondo I recall (not my doing!) driver's side rear fender flare--obvious due to original line not maintained. Also the front fender(s) have some--I need to go look closely again-- and there's a bit on the driver's side cab btwn. door and bed. Main rust issues along outer edges of floor in cab, back of front wheel wells-door sills. Only un-previously-repaired dent: rocker panel below driver's door--door unaffected.
This REPU could be restored to a fairly nice condition...but it would never be 'perfect'. If you live in a rust-intensive environment, and do not wish to sacrifice a better example, perhaps this would be a good body to restore 'to a point', and then just drive... overall, the bed and the hood are better than the cab and the front fenders...
If you're still interested, I can try to clean it and take some pix; this may take me a while since I have lots on my plate right now, and don't own a digital camera...but I'll see what I can do. Let me know... Thanks! --K.
