66 GTO steering box swap

Does anyone have a suggestion of what steering box would be a good upgrade from my original box. I thought I heard once that the 1980's Monte Carlo SS steering boxes were an almost direct fit. Just looking for something with a closer ratio. Any suggestion's?

Power steering? If so, the folks at powersteering.com can rebuild your existing box into a fast-ratio unit in addition to freshening it up. I had them do that for my 69 and I'm happy.

Some are close ratio but have internal stops that will not allow your tires to fully turn and touch the spindle stops , others are too tight ratio wise that is dangerous at high speeds over 50 that is too erratic for the older cars. Be careful in choosing the right one .
