JASPER® customer, Tony Habermel of New Albany, Indiana, was able to watch his remanufactured Ford 390 Big Block on the dynamometer during a recent visit to Jasper Authentic Custom Drivetrains.
A numbers-matching build, including a dyno-run, was part of the package Tony purchased for his 1969 Ford Torino GT Sport Roof.
“My Aunt & Uncle bought the car brand new in February of ’69,” said Tony. “The car sat for nearly 20 years in my Aunt’s garage, on carpet and under a cover.”
“I bought the car from my Aunt, and moved it to my garage, where it sat because there wasn’t time for me to do anything with it.”
“I had the whole body redone after a tree fell on my garage,” Tony added. “The engine wasn’t running right, so I had the engine brought to JASPER.”
During Tony’s visit to JASPER, he toured the facility along with Dawn Byrne of Byrne’s Garage of New Albany. They were both invited into the dyno room to watch Tony’s engine go through its paces.
“The experience with JASPER has been phenomenal,” Tony said. “They are some of the nicest people I have ever dealt with. They have been very helpful and knowledgeable.”
“It’s moments like these, that make my job an absolute pleasure,” said Darren Ragsdale, Jasper Authentic Custom Drivetrains & Performance Division Manager. “It’s an honor to work with our customers, especially when they are passionate about their restoration projects.”
