1969 cruise control

Good afternoon, Gentlemen.
I am a proud owner of a W114 250 automatic with a 130HP M 114 engine.
As far as I know there was only for the American market a cruise control, bought by Ford, mounted in Mercedes garages in US.
In Germany cruise control was not available in these years.

Does anybody know anything about this?
Are there any manuals around?

I would like to have an original one in my car, but I need complete technical information first.
Kind regards

I have no knowledge of such an adaption. I do know that A/C units were dealer retro-fitted made by Thermo-King, using the York vertical compressor as I had several with such.

Thumbs up

it wasn't an adaption but a mercedes Option and was indeed a Ford item( Autolite?) . Info can be found on most mustang/Falcon etc forums on how to repair them. I wish the 6.3 had them too, but it wasn't as simple to use as the later mercedes Tempomat .

Some of the older Chiltons mercedes Books had a few chapters on how to service them.

I just shot an old Chilton book at ebay. What about Haynes manuals of this period?
Thanks for answering.
