  • Power Steeing for Champ PU

    How hard would it be to add power steering to my 8E7 Champ, 259, OD. I don't know if Stude offered it on pickups but I would guess they did by '63.

    They never did offer PS on the smaller trucks[xx(]. Bigger ones, yes. Pickups, no.[V]
    But Chuck Collins devised a way to adapt GT Hawk power steering to the 8E Champ he used to own. I THINK he might still have pics up at his vendor site <> Or you could E-mail him and ask if he still has the pics that detailed the conversion.

    Miscreant at large.
