Sweet looking 67 you've got there. I converted my '67 from manual to factory power steering so that's certainly an option.

FYI ... Recently I bought some parts from Duntov Motor Company but while I was on their website I read this which they have posted on their site. "There can be a tendency to change everything when the steering feels like an old worn out car. When restored to new, your steering will feel great! Your Corvette front suspension was designed to brake in a straight and stable line. The most widely promoted rack and pinion system doesn't help these cars, as the bump steer is off the charts and it has to be mounted so low to the ground as to make it vulnerable in day to day driving conditions. Note that steering 'feel' can be highly influenced by the condition of the rear trailing arm bushings. When those bushings are worn out, you would swear the problem was in your steering!?
