SuperBrat is correct, common and the door handles are the same.

 

You can also use a Gen 2 door handle but it is not quite a perfect fit.

There is a thread about a 1981 Brat in Rancho Cordova, CA in the Junkyard sightings forum that may have the part you need on it. I suggest a request to pay for the part, shipping and some extra for the "beverages while wrenching" fund and you may very well get your handle:

 The tailgate handle is exactly the same as the doors. All you have to do is possibily switch the side that the rod connects too.
