I just did a GOOGLE, and found several with power steering.

Then I checked some online suppliers, and they sell a power steering gear and pump for a 1967Nova.

If there is room for it, I don't see why not. If there isn't room, redesign it.

Hey guys, new member here.

The nova does'nt have a strong enough frame being unibody its not like an A body with a heavy steel frame. Can't handle the pressure. And the way it was designed with the steering sitting so far back it was easier to power assist it and use that rare front sump on the oil pan.
