Then this happened....

And I promise this will be the last T-Thrust Pegasus build you will see out of me,....

(cause that's my last set):D

Thinking of doing this first one as a show truck 2WD,...so let the lowering begin !!

The rear looks fairly straight forward,...trailing arms get unsprung,....will get bagged.

Front is a different matter

I really like the two last ones there. The red one I have seen a lot of pictures of before. I do actually have many pictures of it on my harddrive that have been taken during it's restoration. I found them on some site some years ago. I don't want to post them here but if you want I can email them to you.

For me personally the pictures of the first and second of your projects are a great example of what wheels/tires, stance and some details do to a vehicle. The white one is in my eyes not as good looking but if you put the same wheels on it as the second (yellow/black?) one it would be much better looking.

But the best one is the 4x4:D

Before

After

IMG_5083%20600x450_zpse87yx3o8.jpg

Cut through the frame, each side of the upper A arms and slid that block up,

Drilled thru it all and installed copper wire and glued with 5 min. epoxy

Looking much better, I would vote for 2mm lower in the front though. Rear height is perfect.

Yep. I agree.

Ok,... Man you people are task masters :P The low rider is the next one....just sayin'

1mm lower, in the front...(it's rubbing almost)

1.5 mm higher in the rear... ( cause I said so)

If it goes over a speed bump, I'm blowin' the front quarters off !!:lol:

Next up hydraulics and search the parts drawer for an engine....

Looking much better with the level ride height, even though I was hoping to see you keep the lower rear height and get the front lower.

That height would make an excellent "driver".

I really like how it sits. and a nice simple solution to lowering the front suspension. 

Very classy.

Nice clean looking truck Bruce!! B) I like that.  So many people like to Wal-Mart rash them with so much bling that they look corny. Bonus points for your good taste.:D

Didn't pan out Dan, SWEET 69 !?!

Thanks Kevin, Dan..other one ..;)

So I didn't do a bit more to the '60...

but the '62 409, I got to....

IMG_5158%20600x450_zpsxrz2cbiy.jpg

I figure the guy got it when his dad traded up to a '65 after beating the '60 to death,..he had access to a 409 that his buddies Dad had ripped out of an Impala,turning it into a strip racer, and the story continues...
