From memory, VW used same colours for Fleetlines/Brasilias as they did for other VW products of the corresponding production year.
Maybe colour code info from other models of the same year could be helpful in decyphering Fleetline data?
On the German baywindows, (1975), upholstery details were stamped on serial number plate, like 67/67, which meant light brown. Code 68/67 was dark brown seats and light brown side panels. This was higher-spec seats, maybe the more plain upholstered/ "entry level" seats of same color had a different code?
Paint codes were stamped on a separate plate. Did Fleetlines/Brasilias also have this separate little plate?

Paint codes for 70's seems to differ from earlier codes. As in "code 05" from 75 may have nothing in common with that same code used in the 60's.
Code 02 was light yellow/beige in 74
Code 05 was 0live green in 75. (Code 050 was bottom 05 green combined with 0 sand white top).
Code 03 was light blue in 75. (030 if upper was white).
Code 06 light yellow/beige in 77. (Slightly darker than code 02 of 74).
