As you may remember, I drove the Avanti 2200+ miles last Thanksgiving weekend from Seattle to home in North Texas. It was a blast, but I REALLY missed cruise control.

1. What is a safe but easy cruise control for the '63 Avanti R2
2. who has actual experience??

thanks!

I have been using an Audio-Fox unit for the past 5 years. Got it at the local Hot Rod Shop. It has the magnet on the driveshaft and the control is mounted just below the ignition key on my R2 Avanti. The main "black box" with the control cable on it is mounted just below the battery along the frame rail. where it is not seen easily. All that really is noticeable is the cable connected to the carb linkage. I have had no trouble with it except that with a 3.73 axle it will not cruise over 74mph. I am too lazy to adjust it. Besides it keeps me from getting tickets.
