1950 Willy’s Jeepster

Near the end of June, Vernon's California gearbox is on its way. The resto-mods steering has a few issues we are going to try to help him resolve (Saginaw 800.) (June 2018)

We helped Dwaine at Hill Billy Hot Rodz freshen up with this 1950 F1. We rebuilt the manual steering box. He did an amazing dashboard freshen up for this truck's owner. Dwaine is one of the finest when it comes to resto-mod capabilities in the area - he does it all. (June 2018)

Here's a great article at Hot Rod Network: Rare Find: 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass S W-31 Hides in Original Owner’s Garage for 34 Years. We rebuilt the gearbox and pump for Jimmy's restoration -  fast ratio with extreme detailing - of course (June 2018.)

 


1977 F250 4x4

Bryan, from just "down the road" in Joplin, had us rebuild the troubled power steering gearbox in his F250 - it had been welded to the frame by the prior owner (June 2018.) Many years earlier we rebuilt the gearbox in his Montego too.

1955 Chevy Pickup Resto-mod 

Dean, a local customer, needed his leaking gearbox fixed quick - before the Hot Rod 100 Reliability Run. He figured he'd give the fast ratio upgrade a try too (the truck has a camaro front clip.)

We took care of his gearbox quickly. Then, the owner of PowerSteering.com met Dean at the event's check-in, Dean said "he loved the way it steered now and had already told 6 or 7 people about it."  

From the event's website: "The Hot Rod Hundred is designed to bring back something that has been missing for the last few decades…..driving." There appeared to be a couple hundred cars at check-in. More photos of some cars at the event here. (Mar 2018)

1965 Galaxie 500 LX

It is a beautiful survivor with 87k on the clock now and it has a bit of famous owner ship. Louis Unser the uncle of Al Sr. and Bobby, owned it as his last car. He won the Pikes Peak Hill Climb 9 times in his career. His last win was 1953. I have attached a couple photos of the car we affectionately call “Louie”

1964 Mercury Monterey

The local shop owner that installed the power steering control valve we rebuilt for this 1964 Mercury brought it by for us take a look (his photo was better than ours, so we posted his.) Thanks to Kirby Family Auto Care in Nixa, MO (Mar 2018)

Original  1972 F100

 
I was able to get everything reinstalled on to my truck today. Works wonderfully and I did end up having to pull the steering wheel for realignment. Thanks for the good service.
— Steve, Indiana. Pump & Gearbox Rebuild, (Feb 2018)

PowerSteering.com left the exterior of Steve's pump and gearbox in "as-received condition." Steve wanted what was left of the original finish to remain undisturbed.   

 

1968 Firebird in France

Jean from Le Puy Ste Reparade, France sent us his  gearbox for a fast ratio upgrade. He's preparing the car for racing. The car is a tribute to Craig Fischer's '68 Trans-Am race car Firebird. (At this link, you can learn more about Craig and about half way down the page, you'll see a photo of Craig's '68 Firebird.) (Jan 2018)


TransAmDepot.com

Over the years, we've rebuilt multiple extreme detail gearboxes for TransAmDepot.com restorations, most recently in Jan 2018 (update: 2 more gearboxes in April 2018.)


1973 Cougar 

I just want to thank you for the fantastic work you did in converting my steering box into a fast ratio box. My 1973 cougar now steers & handles nearly as well as my 2008 Cadillac...I didn’t think that was even possible. The show detail you did on the box was so pretty, I almost didn’t want to put it back in the car!

I would recommend your service to any one with a classic car...it`s the best money I`ve ever spent!
