Is it comparable to any newer ride? So i could maybe go find that vehicle and test drive it to see if that's what i'm looking for?
I know some newer vehicles have that rack and pinion

Thanks BTW

Irelands child Not sure why you would want to go all the work to install a rack and pinion setup. The '57 had a pretty good recirculating ball steering box and a fairly straight forward front suspension. I've had two '57's, a convertible and a tudor without power steering and the steering effort wasn't bad, especially with the big diameter steering wheel.
