Hi everyone. I'm presently looking at a very nice '66 GTO and quite honestly, not sure what I'm going to do about it, if anything. The car doesn't have power steering or power brakes. I know I could convert the manual drum to power drum if I wanted. What concerns me more is the power steering. It wouldn't necessarily be a deal breaker, but I would have to know that I could add power steering to the car in the future. I'm pretty sure there are aftermarket kits made for the conversion, but seeing how the car is original, I'd like the factory power steering setup. If this wasn't available, then of course I'd have to go for the after market. I'm assuming that someplace I would be able to find the used parts that I need, but I'm wondering how difficult the conversion would be?? Has anyone ever done this before?? What actually is involved?? Could you share your experience?? Thank you, Nicholas.

I have almost everything for the conversion ....

66 Pontiac only pump and pulley w mounting brackets
a 2 groove water pump pulley
you should/could have a 2 groove lower pulley now ?
and a nice power steering box 67 from a real nice GS convert
gto pitman arm... ....
A new rag joint needs to be purchased from ames...
and probably a pressure side hose also so you never have to worry
I would be happy to walk you thru the process

Thanks Scott. I appreciate your response. As I previously mentioned, I don't even have a car yet. Just wanted to get some idea's as to what is possible. I will take what you said under advisement, Nicholas.
