Cruise control in a Pinto? Never knew that was an option.

I am exploring aftermarket options for cruse control now. Everything is electrical servo operated now, instead of vaccuum actuated.

My 76 Wagon I had from 98-05 also had the dealer installed cruise. And it worked! It was never a factory option.

I had one of these in two of my trucks for a few years and never had a problem and they are adjustable, pretty hard to beat I think..

Similar to the Rostra, should be a good unit.
