1963 Volkswagen Beetle Derelict Car Part Locations - Shift Lock Derelict Car
There are four car parts to find for the 1963 Volkswagen Beetle Derelict car. Follow our map locations below and you’ll get all the parts needed to build the Beetle. We’ve indicated which part we’re going for my referring to each quarter of the clue picture.
Volkswagen Beetle 1963 Derelict Car Part 1 (Top Left)
West of the map, but on the north east corner of the green area on the map. Can’t get to it directly from the freeway, so take the side road (if you go past the part, with it on your left, carry on through the tunnel then take the first right, then look for a dirt road that leads to a ramp overlooking the freeway). To make the jump you need some decent speed, and as it’s dirt you’ll struggle unless you’re in an offroad car.
Volkswagen Beetle 1963 Derelict Car Part 2 (Top Right)
You can find the ramp that will lead you to the second derelict car part for the Volkswagen Beetle 1963 right in the center of the red map area to the west of the map. The road leading to the ramp is lower down than the ramp itself, so you’ll have to head down before heading up again.
Volkswagen Beetle 1963 Derelict Car Part 3 (Bottom Left)
The third part for the derelict Volkswagen Beetle 1963 is found right in the center of the map, on the south side of the northern yellow area on the map. The location on the map above shows where you can find a ramp (next to a barn) that will lead you to the car part. Make sure you use this ramp and not another nearby, as only the one next to the barn will get you to the car part.
Volkswagen Beetle 1963 Derelict Car Part 4 (Bottom Right)
The final car part for the derelict 1963 Volkswagen Beetle is found in the north of the map, in the north east corner of the top red area. This one is pretty tricky to find, but it’s near a billboard that the game will tell you that you’re close to. Essentially you need to find a ramp once again. This ramp is located in the location marked on the map above, and the road leading to it is seen in the accompanying picture.
