The steering is very quick and the power steering is by armstrong. Having grown up and learned to drive without power steering, it is no big deal to me.
Now the brakes are a different story. They are mechanical linkage via rods. You don't want to follow to closely!! And you don't want to lock them up (if you can). It is really a challenge to get all four adjusted the same. I installed hydraulic brakes on my 31 coupe that I used for every day use. I put the brakes back stock when I sold it.
