Power steering for my 50 ford custom
 
LOOKING FOR THE BEST OPTION FOR ADDING POWER STEERING TO MY 50 FORD CUSTOM COUPE! I HAVE HEARD LOTS OF "STORIES" HOWEVER I WANT TO TALK WITH SOMEONE THAT'S BEEN THERE/DONE THAT AND KNOWS THE FACTS. THE VARIOUS OPTIONS I'VE HEARD ABOUT BUT HAVEN'T SEEN ARE: MID 80s-MID 90s ISUZU PICKUP, TOYOTA PICKUP (NOT SURE WHICH MODEL OR YEAR AND THE RACK AND PINION FROM A LATE 80s-MID 90s CAVALIER.
LOOKING FOR GOOD INFO, PICS WOULD BE NICE AND SOMEONE THAT'S ALREADY DID IT AND HOW WELL IT WORKS.
THANKS, HERB

Now back to my original question. I would like to get some options on adding power steering to my 50 ford custom. it has rebuilt original front suspension with dropped uprights, disc brakes, 289sbf/c4 combo. pics would be great but i would like to hear from someone thats been there done that. I have heard about but not seen about three options. Mid 80s to mid 90s isuzu pickup box, toyota pickup box (not sure about year and late 80s to mid 90s cavalier rack and oinion.

Bob,
Thanks for the reply. Did you do the stub your self? At 68, I have given up my shop and am not able to do that big of a project even though it sounds good and I have heard of it before. Do you have a shop and would you be interested in doing the swap? I live about 8mi north of Louisville, Ky
Thanks, Herb
