Post 56 chev p/u power steering

I have a stock 56 chev p/u with a straight 6. Would like to have a smaller steering wheel & cool rims & tires for my 16 yr old son to be happy. That would make power steering necessary. Has any of you done this? thanks for any replies.

Another option is to use a steering gear from a Toyota Land Cruiser. It is shaped almost like the early Chevy and Ford units and with a little bracketry a Borgerson coupling, and a new Chevy tilt column you will end up with a stock looking P/S unit in the stock location. I can send you a copy aof an article on the installation in a '50s Ford F-100 but should be identical to a Chevy.
