I just did a GOOGLE, and found several with power steering.

Then I checked some online suppliers, and they sell a power steering gear and pump for a 1967Nova.

If there is room for it, I don't see why not. If there isn't room, redesign it.

Hey guys, new member here.

The nova does'nt have a strong enough frame being unibody its not like an A body with a heavy steel frame. Can't handle the pressure. And the way it was designed with the steering sitting so far back it was easier to power assist it and use that rare front sump on the oil pan.

Can you post a pic of the location of a 66 gear box? Ive heard there is a difference.Im going to install the gear box but Ill probly beef the mounting location up.Im working on replacing floor boards right now so itll be awhile.
