64 ford f100 power brakes and steering conversion

I have a 64 f100 that i plan on restoring. I want to replace with power brakes and steering. My question is what vehicles will match up with these parts i need? I've heard 70-79 ford. These in itself can be hard to find. Is there anything else? Need some ideas!!!

My sister had a big ol 66 f250 that I was helping her work on. It too had manal steering and brakes. I went to the junkyard and found a next gen(wanna say 67 or 68) f150 with a booster. I pulled the booster and brackets for 30 bux and bolted it to the firewall with ease. This will take some adjustment though as the brake pedal was too hi I believe so I added some washers to move the booster foreward as well as adjusted the rod going into the back of the booster. Man this thing would lock up the tires with ease! As far as the power steering, through research I found that if you're lucky enough to find a pre 67 ps box it will bolt up and life is good. This won't be likely and they will cost ALOT lol. If you find a ps box from 67-up, it will bolt up and life will be good except the steering column will actually be moved up into the cab an will be almost too high close to your chest/chin which is not safe in an accident . You can shorten the column by cutting it which will be more work but in the end you will have power steering! Good luck man

Oh forgot to mention, I can't recall how it goes but there might be a problem if you are running headders or plan on using them. One of the two ps boxes will not have clearance.
