do you mean as standard equipment on the car or when available as in on
the market that you could have installed on your car as in aftermarket?
i did install a bulb type pump-it-with-yourp-foot on the floor that i
had purchased as a parts store.
here's some trivia for late 50's early 60's.
my 1957 ford custom did not come with a heater, that was optional, it
did come with turn signals, that was standard in 1955 or 1956.
tires had a warranty of 12,000 miles, exhaust systems wore out as early
as 10,000 miles, and engines were considered at the end of their life by
70,000. we had just went to a 12 volt system around 1955 and everyone
was amazed about how fast the starter speed was. air condition cars
were few and far in between. and you could buy a 4v 312 v-8 with a
super charger for your standard car.
we have come so far.
anyone else want to add to memory lane?
