Plum Crazy Fans Get a Candy Purple 1968 Chevy C10 Drag Truck Ahead of the Real Build

For more than four decades, General Motors produced the C/K series of trucks under the Chevrolet and GMC brands. Enough time, presumably, for anyone to settle on a single Detroit automaker.

Some people prefer the Blue Oval F-Series over all others. Others are only interested in the Dodge Rams. And, of course, there's a segment of the aficionado community waiting to see what GM has in store for them. Certain owners or builders, on the other hand, are grateful for the collective efforts.

Although we can't confirm the idea, it could be the case with this digital project, which is about to embark on a real-world customization journey.

So, perhaps the C10 we see here in a few virtual poses was purposefully designed to look like the Plum Crazy Mopar lot. After all, it's either that or the intention was to annoy them...

To be honest, if someone asks us, we will always choose the positive supposition. But they didn't, so let's look at the facts that are known.

Abimelec Arellano, the virtual artist behind the abimelecdesign social media account, has temporarily abandoned his very personal automotive visions.

Now he's built this 1968 Chevrolet C10 as a direct virtual-to-real order for an aftermarket shop (Fabstar Performance Fabrication) that plans to use the pickup as a race week/weekend drag cruiser.

It's designed to have all the necessary racer looks (and oily bits), so it won't just annoy Mopar Plum Crazy fans, but it might even beat them in the quarter-mile!

Of course, with a little assistance from the fat rear tires. These will be supplemented by a properly caged 25.5 chassis, a single turbo 502ci BBC (big-block Chevy) motor running on e85, and a TH400 transmission... And, of course, a parachute!

All Chevy fans need now is a little patience because the truck won't hit the dragstrip until next year, when the real-world build is also expected to be completed.
