Install power steering

I'm getting to old to fight the manual steering in my Clipper. I am thinking of buying a parts car that became available with power steering and dealer air. (Air in the trunk) What would be involved in switching the Power Steering? Would I have to swap out the steeing gear box? I noticed it is a different part number but it is it really necessary? It doesn't look too difficult. My Clipper already has the double crankcase pulley as I swapped out the engine several years ago with a 56 Patrician.

about ten years ago I sold a 56 Caribbean hardtop to a gentleman in Germany. It was a complete original car with all the pieces. The top was pretty well rusted out and I forwarned him of this. He said it was not a problem: The top from a 400 would work. I think the clipper top would work also.

The windlace on the rear quarter panel on a 55 Constellation I am considering buying goes up all the way to the window sill and tucks underneath it. It is also that way on my Caribbean and Panama although those two do not have original interiors. The Constellation is all original.

I'd sell my 55 Panama for half that $150,000 price.

Has anyone seen the recent ad on e-bay for the sale of a 55 Panama in Az. Seller says car would be worth $100,00 to 150,000 restored. Where do people get these ideas and is anyone stupid enough to believe it? By the way, it looks like a parts car.

Owen,
I thank you for the templates. I really hate to put holes in the fenders but guess I can always lead them in later if I remove the mirrors.
