Brake question for 46-48 Ford owners

My 48 Ford coupe has manual brakes at this time and I would like to put power in. I know there are booster/master/pedal kits out there that say they are bolt on the frame. I have looked at the underside of the car and it just doesn't look like there is room under there. Car has a 327 with a 350 TH trans. Has anybody out there done this.

yes there is room, barely, thats why a small boost diaphram is used, several hot rod suppliers sell the kits, don't forget to use residual valves in the system.
