SOLD I think its time. "InSpite" is for sale.

SOLD

It has come time for me to sell this project. It is not an easy decision to make, as this has been my first custom as well as the first truck that I could call my own. But you have to move onward and upward at some point. Below are the details of the truck as well as pictures and links to additional photos. Please take a look and let me know if you are interested in providing a good home for a very well-built truck. The price is at the very bottom of this page, as well as contact information for myself, if you would like to make an offer.

This truck was featured in Street Trucks magazine after making a successful appearance at SEMA 2007. Since then, it has taken several awards at various shows across the Southwestern United States. It has also been featured on SoCalCustoms.com and will be featured in an upcoming release of the Surface DVD series. We have also shot the truck for Truckin' magazine and anticipate publication soon.

As you will see from the pictures below, this truck is a full show truck. Everything has been touched on this truck and done with the best quality products and craftsmanship available. The paint job is top notch. You won't see lines that stop at the jams on this truck, the graphics wrap all the way in. The interior is clean and complete, and it even comes with a back seat in case you want to take the stereo out. The suspension is on point as well, with a KP Components full 6 link rear kit and Air Ride Technologies upper and lower control arms, you just can't get a better suspension. Add to that the stainless steel hard line, digital pressure gauges and speed controls, and you have a suspension that will not let you down or leave you wanting more.

I have a clean title in my name. This truck is ready to drive. I drive it every weekend and do not think twice about taking it on road trips. I have taken it to Vegas and California several times. I have easily put 6,000 miles on this truck since the body drop and 5,000 miles of that has been after paint – so this is most definitely a driver.

Enough with the "talking", lets get to the pictures.

PRICE:
$20,000 OBO as it sits.

You will also receive a copy of the magazine with the feature article in it as well as all spare parts that I have for the truck including the back seat, full set of spare tires (stock 15" rims and tires), other interior panels and mechanical parts that I have collected over the years.

If you would like to make an offer, please email me at [email protected] or send me a PM.

Chad

Gorgeous truck, I know how it goes letting go of your first "custom" truck.

You gonna try and sell it for cash or trade for something?

Thanks for all the well wishes.

As far as trading/cash. I would entertain trades but it would have to be for an early 50s Ford/Chevy 2 door car. So thats a pretty specific trade that will not likely happen. So I would bet that I will have to sell it for cash then buy my car. We will see.

RIP InSpite :bawl: I have loved this truck since I first saw it on here. Too bad I never got to see it in person.

Good luck on the sale man and I can't even imagine what you could do with a 50s 2door :drool:
It ain't gone yet. There is still time to see it in person. It will be at the AZ meet too.

I would love to just keep it in my garage, but if I do that there is nowhere to work on other stuff. And like I said, I have to fund my other projects some how. we will see for sure, if it doesn't sell then the garage is where it will stay. well that is unless I am out driving the piss out of it.
