I assume you are looking for a bolt in kit for this? That I don't think is made yet for these cars. If you want to do it yourself, you can buy a universal rack and fabricate a setup. My 70 has a manual rack and pinion setup in it with a stock column and spindles.

I would have to check on the brand, I did mine about 8 years ago. Its a universal manual pinto style rack with the anti bump steer tie rod kit. The car has the upward travel semi limited to prevent bump steer, because it can happen when the tie rods and control arms move in different arcs. My car normally wheelstands about 12-18" limited by the wheelie bars. Its not the best for parking but the rack is unnoticeable when driving. I still have the stock column with the extension shafts and universal joint to connect to the rack. The front end is stock control arms and stock style shocks. So far the car drives effortlessly at almost 150 mph in a car weighing almost 3200 lbs.
