We have a stock 1962 Nova 6 cylinder manual steering car in the family that I would like to convert to power steering to accommodate an elderly driver. Does anyone know if power steering was an option on 62 or how much of a pain this will be to convert on a reasonably small budget?

The optional power steering on 62-67 cars was a hydraulic cylinder assist similar to the power steering on 55-64 full size cars.

If you wanted to convert your car to that, you'd have to get the cylinder, brackets, and center link from a factory power steering car. Should be all the same pieces from 62-67.

Also you'd have to find a power steering pump and installation parts for your engine accessory drive.
