Post Power brakes on 1960-1966 Chevy C-10

Does anyone know how to but power brakes on a 1960-1966 Chevy C-10 pick up. I have already bought the disc brake conversion kit and adjustable porportioning valve. But with this kit it allows me to use the stock spindles with a later model mid size car rotors and calipers. But I would like to have power brakes too. But I don't want to spend 400.00 doing it. May be there is a booster small enough to fit under my hood and want need to many modifications! Chevy duty sells on but it's 400.00 bucks, so I was just wondering has anyone else done this with junkyard donor parts. The big truck booster is too tall so it will have to be a small one. Any help would be greatlt appreciated. Thanks alot guys this is the best tech forum on the net.

I have a 65 step-shortbox waiting in line for project time, and I planned on using the components from a 74-84 chevy 1/2 ton pickup, I have an 80 that I have just Eyeballed the components on but it looks like a very easy swap, the complete front suspension from the later truck unbolts and should go under the 65 easily, this gives me power disc brakes, power steering, and a later, better rear end, also I can use all the factory designed parts for less problems with prop valves and improper brake sizes.Maybe some of these ideas will help?
