Pitman arm, gearbox, pulleys, and brackets are all different. Not a quickie swap. Best bet is to get it all at once from a wrecked car. Pretty much any Pontiac A body '64-72 will work.

your timing cover, and or waterpump is going to govern which year power steering components are going to work on your motor. otherwise pulleys wont line up with each other. proceed with caution . first identify timing cover on your motor. rickm.
