You can do it. I did it on my 1996 Saturn, but I did it while I was changing the engine. The new engine came with a power steering pump, so I also purchased a new power steering rack as well, and while I had the engine out I removed the old manual steering rack and put in the new one, connected the hoses, and voila, I had power steering. I'm not sure all cars are this easy, but my Saturn was. .

You can convert manual to power steering on a 1969 Camaro. the steering box will need to be changed, and a pump and brackets as well as fluid lines will need to be added.

Of course. Heck you could convert it to a diesel if you really wanted to.

Yes.It can be converted . You will need to install a power assisted steering rack, power steering pump, belts and hoses.

Yes. you will have to replace the manual steering box with a power steering box, install a power steering pump and lines and possibly a main pulley on the crank to run the belt for the power steering pump if your car doesn't have the right pulley.

It is not possible to alter a car from a manual steering into a power steering car. The engines for the two types of cars are very different.
