TRAVIS GRACE

55 CHEV BEL AIR FEB 2017

Street Machine - - Your Stuff -

GEE­LONG’S Trav Grace has a deep-seated affin­ity for tri-five Chevys that dates back to his for­ma­tive years. He’s owned sev­eral, but this is his best yet, re­splen­dent in PPG Re­gal Turquoise and In­dia Ivory. “I wanted to keep the 50s feel, but it still had to look tough while be­ing user-friendly,” Trav says. The tough part is sorted thanks to a twin-turbo LS1, good for around 560hp at the wheels at 9psi. “It re­ally is the best of both worlds,” Trav en­thuses. “It sounds like it has a stan­dard crate mo­tor in it, but when it hits boost it sud­denly turns into a 10-sec­ond car.”
