    I wonder if "1" is correct grammatically.
    If so, I wonder if "2" is correct.
    1. It was like a dream come true.
    2. It was like a dream comes/came true.

    It was like a dream becomes true.

    More complicated version:
    It was as if a dream become (would become) true.

    1. It was like a dream come true. This is the standard way of saying it.
    2. It was like a dream comes/came true.
    But you could say 'It was like a dream coming true.'
