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

Please don't use CAPS in the forums. I saw your post in Introductions, but put some more details here for better answers.

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
