    My 60 Olds 2 door was a tail dragged of sorts. 2 Inch blocks, static drop. I liked the look. My 60 Olds wagon has air shocks. Thinking of adding blocks, maybe replacing the shocks with stock ones and adding air over leaf.

    Anybody have pics of tail dragging wagons to help encourage me or discourage me from going this route?

    Thanks for all the cool pics, not quite what I'm looking for. I'm thinking more reverse rake. Sort of like this...although
    this sits pretty level. 61-falcon-wagon--195.jpg

    I would hafta be with the discourage group, A tail draggin wagon would just look like a worn out wagon to me, sorry, I like em level or maybe a little rake in the front.
    Seein the daily driver wagons from back in the day, squated in the back with the quarters rusted out at the bottom is still etched in my my mind,so you know my .02 but Its yours, so, if you like it, go for it.

    Another "no" vote here. Like a previous poster said, it'll just look like a wagon with tired rear suspension. If you forge ahead, make sure you don't do anything permanent, because you'll want to change it eventually.

    Another No vote. Tail dragging a 50's-60's wagon is more suited for the Lowrider style/look (Impala, etc.). That's not a dig, but just the direction you'd be going toward.
    Custom or Rodded wagons should be raked or level.
    A prewar style Custom Coupe or Roadster such as a 36 Ford can be tail dragged but is really needs to be a full Custom WITH skirts in order to pull it off.
