You will need some sort of aftermarket cruise control. Most of the people I know who have done this use the Rostra unit. It actually attaches and works from the throttle pedal.

Here is one on eBay... Buy It Now for $229 including the control switch.

Clifford, this Rostra on eBay is the exact same unit that Pete sells according to the part number.

I don't if the Rostra is a good unit or not I went for the King a lot more more bucks than Rostra but I know King is a good unit.There was a guy in Houston selling Rostra cheaper than Pete

good luck

Jerry I did install the Rostra cruise control is not that hard to do but I'm still having problems with it. I move the black box up into the dash and is not working right I'm waiting for the rally in Arcadia and let Pete take a look at it . The price that I paid for it was $195.00. I have pics on the project Eagle page.
