Tell us more - stock flathead or engine transplant? Stock suspension? Chassis? What do you want to do with this car eventually. These cars didn't steer hard with the original 6-710x15 tires, but newer larger radials can increase the effort some, but not much. Finding an original '50s FoMoCo ('49-'53)type PS arrangement that still is in working order will be tough so anything else will be an adaptation and a fairly extensive mod with the big front cross member, the little original steering box and drag link/king pin front end with large 'A' frames
