YAK Car Pic of the Day

vw rolls conversion cpy

          Thanks to the YAK team of correspondents spanning the globe, today we can show you this early ’70s VW Super Beetle with a Rolls-Royce front-end conversion, which Nick Otto found recently while tooling around the streets of Alexandria, Virginia. These conversions were quite popular back in the 70s, and there were several variations available (there was also a rear-end R-R conversion kit). Another version, sold by J.C. Whitney, was the ’40 Ford, a Woodie version of which (below) appeared on the Hemming’s Motor News blog back in 2012.
