Pegaus one-off truck oddity

I just noticed an interesting vehicle posted over at Kit Car magazine called the “Pegasus”. Details are scarce, but it seems to be a one off vehicle built by Fantasy Cars on a ’78 Chevrolet C1500 truck, presumably for a movie. It’s a horrendously ugly neat start, but to me it feels “unfinished”.

    Looks to me like KITT was popular with the females back in the days of Knight Rider and this is the offspring… ^o^

    Very ugly.
    The nose and hood are off of an early thirdgen firebird.

    Use Google Images and enter 1965 Dodge Power Wagon should be the first picture.
    I am trying to absolutely prove that this truck is a ONE-Off, please let me know if you have seen others.

      These cars and trucks were built by Bob Masters. My first job was working with this fiberglass Guru. He was in the Houston area. The trucks starred on a tv show for a while. there are still a few cruising the streets.

    I LOVE IT! There is one in Greenville TX and I wondered what it was. I figured it was just a pickup with panels from a thunderbird and customized hood and grille. It is yellow, and the back looks like a regular Chevy truck, but it has the same front end, possibly a more sloped windshield, and has the car-like rocker panels. It surely is a fiberglass job though. It’s old and faded yellow paint or primer, and just sitting in a car graveyard.

      Bob Masters actually owned Pegasus Motor cars. I also think Charlie Vannatter was also in on it as Bob used his shop on allen genoa to build and display the cars and trucks. There is a guy on the north side of Houston that has popped some molds and selling them today. I have a friend that still has one and a daily driver.

        Hey Ron. Thanks for the comment. We posted this way back in 2009 and at the time there really was no information on it. Thanks for the update!
