1964 Impala Power Steering?

I'm just beginning the process of restoring my 1964 Impala SS convertible. When I got the car the steering was missing. Does anyone know if there is a way to find out if the car originally was equipped with power steering or power brakes? Would it have an option code on the cowl tag? I know the left sway bar bracket is different on a power steering car but that was also missing when I got the car. Thanks Nick

Pitman arm_Idler arm length maybe? Unless it has to go back together all original, I would put a late model variable ratio quick turn power steering box and late model remote reservoir pump. All metric converted to run AN steel fittings with braided steel (high pressure teflon lined )lines.

Maybe??? My 2 door h/t coupe has factory PS, and a few more option codes than normal, even more so than the L6 SS, which also has power steering. I can check on this for you if you'd like?
